Welcome to the BC Forest Safety Council

July 2014 - Radio Communication Changes

Details of Incident / Close Call: 

Resource road (RR) radio channels and call protocols have changed and the switch over has already occurred in some regions of British Columbia. Additional regions will be implementing the switch over through the remainder of 2015 and possibly the first quarter of 2016. Contact your local Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO) office or call FrontCounter BC at 1-877-855-3222 to find out when the change will be happening in your area.

It is Road Safety at Work Week in BC!

From March 2-6, all employers and workers are asked to create awareness around road safety at work.

On average in BC each year, 23 workers die in work-related motor vehicle incidents and more than 1,200 are injured.

Distracted driving is a key factor. The BC Forest Safety Council co-sponsored this radio ad across the province to help spread the safety message.

Because on the road, the smartest phone is off!
