Faller Certification

In British Columbia, all manual tree fallers in forestry operations must be certified. Falling trees by hand requires highly specialized skills and a commitment to working safely every day. Fallers need to be aware of physical hazards, the dangers of fatigue and stress and the exacting requirements of meeting production demands. It’s not for everyone, but for those who are up to the challenge, it is a rewarding and satisfying profession.

There are three paths to apply to challenge faller certification with the BC Forest Safety Council:

1. New Faller Trainees:

2. Enform (Energy Safety Canada) & BC Wildfire Service Certified Fallers:

3. Out of Jurisdiction Faller (not in BC):
