Safety in B.C. sawmills is a vitally important issue, firstly to those who work in the industry, and also to their families and communities. Our common goal is to make wood-dust management an integral part of manufacturing operations. We will continue to work proactively with businesses around the province to make safety a fundamental part of this industry.
WorkSafeBC is committed to sharing all pertinent information that emerges during the course of our investigations of the two tragic sawmill explosions in early 2012. We have provided regular updates in the following areas:
