Employees tasked with processing burnt wood could experience changes in:

  • Their schedules
  • Their regular assigned duties
  • May have to learn new procedures such as wearing PPE.

Operations may experience negative impact in productivity which may cause employees to believe productivity is most important.  Use these resources developed my MAG, FP Innovations and BCFSC to help mitigate the risks of processing burnt wood.
