Forest Supervisor Training

Supervisors and managers in the forest industry play an important role in keeping their workers safe and productive. Based on the input of forestry supervisors across the province, the BC Forest Safety Council is offering three training modules that will provide supervisors and managers with skills and knowledge to help them oversee their workers effectively. Each module can be taken on its own, or an individual can sign up for all three.

These three training modules are for managers, supervisors, foremen or others responsible for supervision of forest workers. There are no prerequisites required to attend any of the modules.


Module 1 – Due Diligence for Forest Supervisors
British Columbia’s worker safety laws require that employers supervise workers, that supervisors receive training appropriate to their duties, and that the training is documented in a manner acceptable to WorkSafeBC. This module will focus on the supervisor’s legal responsibilities, and how to prove due diligence. It will also equip an individual to follow the hazard control process to protect workers on site. Module 1 is equivalent to the Council's original Basic Forest Supervisor course.

Module Objectives

Duration
One day of trainer led classroom training. Coffee and lunch are provided.


Module 2 – Communication for Forest Supervisors
One of a supervisor’s most important jobs is to communicate with workers. This module will help supervisors and managers to improve their communication skills to help streamline operations. Participants will focus on verbal and written communication, and how to make it more effective.

Module Objectives

Duration
One day of trainer led classroom training. Coffee and lunch are provided.


Module 3 – Leadership and Professionalism for Forest Supervisors
An effective supervisor is both a leader and a professional. This module will help each individual to understand their strengths and weaknesses, and to recognize how their personal style impacts the workers they supervise. As part of this module, each participant must complete a private, on-line assessment of their personal style.

Duration
One day of trainer led classroom training. Coffee and lunch are provided.
