Marine Safety

This information is to support the improvement of the safety performance and health of workers in and directly impacted by marine forest operations. The MFSAG (Marine Forest Safety Advisory Group) was created following the floundering and sinking of the Lasquetti Daughters (a self-propelled barge). MFSAG is an industry-based group intended to cooperatively determine the type, frequency and factors relating to marine forest safety incidents and take appropriate actions to improve safety performance and reduce the potential for injuries and fatalities. See Marine Foresty Safety Advisory Group for more information.
