Get your nominations in! It’s time to recognize the safety leaders in BC’s forest industry.
The BC Forest Safety Council is seeking nominations for two annual awards. We’re looking for people that work in the forest industry and are known for their safety-first approach. In such a vast province with so many hard working people looking out for each other on the job, who do you feel deserves recognition? Who has contributed to a safer workplace? Who has led change for the better? Let us know by sending in your nomination today.
This special award is presented to an individual who, through a long career in the forest industry has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to improving safety awareness, expanding safety knowledge, developing safety skills at ground level and building a lasting culture of safety among BC’s forest workers. This individual is known for being a “teacher” of safety, a trainer, an instructor, a mentor…someone who goes the extra mile to help others reach their safety goals with a helping hand, proven experience and knowledge.
Devoting a lifetime of work to our industry is an achievement of its own. Tell us about the person you know who has made a difference when it comes to forest safety. Send in your nomination!
