Choose To Save Lives – Actively Participate in a Safety Culture

Plans are well underway for the 2016 Interior Safety Conference. Building on the success of the Northern BC Forest Safety Conference, the forest industry is working to build a similar event in the BC’s Interior.

This event is being held in partnership with the Interior Logging Association Conference which is being held on May 6 and 7, 2016, also at the Vernon Atrium Hotel & Conference Centre.

The conference will bring the latest health and safety information to those working in the forest industry. The conference’s goal is to bring together participants from every phase of the forest industry from harvesting to wood products manufacturing.

This year’s conference will include sessions on building safety behaviours, effective supervision, road safety culture, and best practices on sharing safety information with employees and contractors. The conference will provide practical information and tools for workers, supervisors, managers, or owner-operators, to help better understand and resolve safety challenges in the industry.

The conference steering committee is made up of representatives from Industry, the BC Forest Safety Council and WorkSafeBC. Sponsorships from industry allow for free admission for delegates.

Registration for the conference opens in February 2016. Keep checking this site for updates, agendas and registration information.
