Shake and Shingle Guarding

In 2015, BCFSC worked with several operators to identify additional guarding opportunities in the BC Shake and Shingle Industry to address injuries taking place on shingle head saws and trim saws. Representatives from The Teal Jones Group, Waldun Group, Streifel Industries and Desjardin Industries (Quebec) collaborated to develop two guarding solutions for use in BC with the intent for companies to use these options or develop their own compliant guarding solutions.
