Forestry safety seminar is coming to Fort St. John

The seminar, ‘Anatomy of a Rollover’ is specifically designed for long truck drivers, loader operators and forest supervisors, discussing “the five main causes of rollovers and the steps drivers and loader operators can take to prevent them from occurring.”

“Grant really hits home the point that each truck load of logs is different and even small changes in height, weight or speed can affect handling characteristics and probability of a roller,” Transportation and Northern Safety Director of BCFSC, Dustin Meierhofer said.

The event is free of charge and will run May 21, from 9 am to noon. You can register by calling 1-877-324-1212 or email training@bcforestsafe.org.

The BCFSC is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to safety in the forest industry. Among other roles, they provide training, information and guidance to ensure the safest practises; everything from planning, timber development, harvesting, transportation and reforestation.
