Take advantage of the Council's Safety Advocate Services program. An expanded range of safety services are available for all companies seeking to make improvements in the way they manage their safety activities for business success. These services are available on request at no additional charge to registered SAFE Companies.
The Forest Safety Council wants to help you find the answers you are looking for.
Forest Safety Advocates are available to assist you with your questions and to coach you to achieve better safety results. They are safety professionals with many years experience in the forest sector in BC. They all have on-the-ground experience developing, implementing or managing health and safety programs for a variety of forest industry activities.
Your assigned Safety Advocate will work with you to:
Usually they will spend one day, but it’s possible for this to be adjusted, or for a follow up to be scheduled, depending on a company’s need. Please discuss this with your assigned Safety Advocate.
In order to use the services of a Safety Advocate, your company needs to be registered in the SAFE Companies Program and ready to make further commitments to safety.
Applications are handled on a first come first served basis.
Reviewed and accepted applications will be forwarded to the appropriate Safety Advocate and they will contact you to make arrangements for your session.
Please note that due to other Safety Advocate commitments or activities, there is no guarantee of immediate service. In general, expect to hear from an Advocate within two weeks of your request.
Safety Advocate Services are available at no additional charge to registered SAFE Companies.
Council-provided Safety Advocates are independent service delivery contractors to the Council and to industry. They are not employees of the Council and, in most cases, will have outside safety or other business activities. As a general principle, it is inappropriate for them to mix Safety Advocate activities with their own consulting services.
To provide guidance on appropriate activities and communication, Safety Advocates must adhere to a Code of Conduct, which you can download and read here. Breaches of this Code of Conduct must be reported to the Forest Safety Council immediately in order to protect the integrity of the Safety Advocate program.
