Building on the success of the Northern BC Forest Safety Conference, the forest industry worked to build a similar event in the BC’s Interior.
This event was held in partnership with the Interior Logging Association Conference which was held on May 6 and 7, 2016, also at the Vernon Atrium Hotel & Conference Centre.
The conference brought the latest health and safety information to those working in the forest industry. The conference’s goal is to bring together participants from every phase of the forest industry from harvesting to wood products manufacturing.
2016's conference included sessions on building safety behaviours, effective supervision, road safety culture, and best practices on sharing safety information with employees and contractors. The conference provided practical information and tools for workers, supervisors, managers, or owner-operators, to help better understand and resolve safety challenges in the industry.
The conference steering committee is made up of representatives from Industry, the BC Forest Safety Council and WorkSafeBC. Sponsorships from industry allow for free admission for delegates.
