Good training is a key part of doing any job safely and productively. The BC Forest Safety Council helps employers and employees get the information and training they need for the work they do.
Our resources include things like safe work instructions that you can adapt for your site, training and policies that can guide a company’s day to day activities, supervisor training for people directly overseeing workers, and occupational training for new hand fallers.
Our goal is simple; knowledgeable employers and well trained workers acting together to improve safety on the job.
