2017 SAFE Companies Town Halls

Thank you to everyone for participating in our Town Halls. A summary of the Town Halls and notes are available here SAFE Companies Town Halls 2017 Feedback.



Town halls hosted in 2017 for industry to share views and ask questions

In 2017, SAFE Companies invited industry to come have a coffee/tea, meet Cherie Whelan, Director SAFE Companies, and provide feedback on everything to do with SAFE Companies and safety in forestry in BC.

With the proposed formation of a volunteer-run SAFE Companies Advisory Committee (SCAC) – and thank you to the more than 50 folks who put their hands up to help – input was needed on what industry wanted to see SCAC achieve and how they wanted to see the SAFE Companies program further improved. Industry was also able to tell the BC Forest Safety Council (BCFSC) their  thoughts on WorkSafeBC’s proposed new Certificate of Recognition (COR) Policy so that BCFSC can ensure WorkSafeBC receives the best feedback to help shape final policy and regulation.

Most importantly it was an opportunity for people to talk directly to the head of SAFE Companies and share thier thoughts on the audit tools, audit submission process, audit review and feedback, verification visits, resource packages and tools, BCFSC onsite support, and anything else that is important to forestry workers' safety.

The last town halls hosted by the BCFSC were three years prior to 2017.  In 2017, 22 town hall meetings were hosted.  These meetings were in addition to the online survey that was sent out to each SAFE Company earlier in 2017.
