Western Canadian Timber Products Ltd is committed to creating a workplace that is safe, healthy and injury-free. Our employees are our most valuable assets, and their safety and health is our first priority. Safety is essential to all business functions and is never compromised under any circumstance. Every employee has a responsibility to maintain our work environment including reporting hazards, close calls, incidents and working toward preventing accidents. Our staff are fully trained and are recognized through the industry and the world, as safety leaders.
We will provide training, review our procedures, review accidents and maintain the equipment. In the event of an injury, we actively work to return the employee back to their jobs, when medically possible. Our injury management program ensures our people are looked after in the event of an injury and helps return them to work with respect and dignity.
We provide support to our Safety Committee by providing them the time, employees and management commitment needed to reach our common goal of an injury free workplace. I appreciate our employee’s full cooperation to follow our safety program and make our workplace safe, healthy and injury-free.
Our group currently has 1 safe certified company through the BC Forest Safety Council and another currently registered and in the process of certification. We are full supporters of the BC FSC and the great work it has done to help our industry in the reduction and eventual elimination of workplace injuries and fatalities.
