YOU are invited to come have a coffee/tea, meet Cherie Whelan, Director SAFE Companies, and provide your feedback on everything to do with SAFE Companies and safety in forestry in BC.
With the proposed formation of a volunteer-run SAFE Companies Advisory Committee (SCAC) – and thank you all to the more than 50 folks who have put their hands up to help – we need your input on what you want to see SCAC achieve and how you want to see the SAFE Companies program further improved. You will also be able to tell the BC Forest Safety Council (BCFSC) your thoughts on WorkSafeBC’s proposed new Certificate of Recognition (COR) Policy so that we can ensure that WorkSafeBC receives the best feedback to help shape final policy and regulation.
Most importantly it’s an opportunity for you to talk directly to the head of SAFE Companies and share all your thoughts on the audit tools, audit submission process, audit review and feedback, verification visits, resource packages and tools, BCFSC onsite support, and anything else that is important to you to getting yourself and your crews to work and home safely every day.
The last town halls hosted by the BCFSC were three years ago. This year we will be hosting 21 town hall meetings to hear from you. These meetings are in addition to the online survey that was sent out to each SAFE Company earlier this year.
