Man-made Hazards

Safety Alert Type: 
Vancouver Island / Coastal BC
Date of Incident / Close Call: 
Company Name: 
Strategic Natural Resource Consultants Inc.
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

Crews completing post-harvest assessments identified “man-made” hazards that had been created in the harvesting phases (see photos in attached pdf).

Crews identified these hazards early, and ensured teams avoided being in the bight. The hazards were also reported to the land owner.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

Although these acts may seem to showcase skills in equipment operation, creation of these hazards can be devastating for post-harvest activities including surveying and / or planting.

Created hazards such as these can also be a serious problem months or years down the road, when stumps rot or harvesting occurs in future.
