All fatalities no matter when they occur are tragic events and the BC Forest Safety Council (BCFSC) extends sincere condolences to the family members and co-workers of those workers who were lost.

The BCFSC will continue to support industry in further reducing fatalities and serious injuries in 2015. Sharing the knowledge from incident investigations is one way to improve the industry’s safety performance. The Safety Alerts webpage contains incident information submitted by forest companies from across the province. See http://www.bcforestsafe.org/safety_info/alerts_bulletins.html
