This session covers what to look out for when working in avalanche terrain, what equipment you need and tips for staying safe in the woods during winter.
The workshop is being presented by Carole Savage, a Registered Professional Forester and an Active Member of the Canadian Avalanche Association. Carole is experienced in both forestry operations/avalanche control and delivers the snowmobile backcountry avalanche workshops training for the Canadian Avalanche Association. WorkSafe BC will also be on hand to answer your questions about changes in the avalanche regulation (4.1.1 – Snow Avalanche Assessments).
This workshop is suitable for field workers, safety coordinators, company owners, equipment operators and anyone who may be working in avalanche exposure areas.
