With production assistance from Western Forest Products Timberlands, SAFER has produced four logging related safety videos that deal timber harvesting, transportation, and timber sorting.
While the BC forest industry focuses on its commitment to reducing and ultimately eliminating workplace accidents through its forestry certification and training programs, SAFER has taken some steps to team up with Western Forest Products Timberlands in an effort to improve the way forest workers assess the day-to-day hazards and to improve their chances of avoiding workplace injury.
The result of these efforts is the professional production of four videos filmed locally in Western Forest Products Timberland operations. Click the links below to view videos from a new series called In The Clear. These four videos offer specific safety-related information on yarding and loading timber in a hillside setting, awareness on safe work practices when loading logging trucks, and on how to stay safe when working in dryland sorts - all relevant topics to ensure that workers return home safe.

SAFER is jointly
It is pretty clear to someone just hearing about SAFER that safety is the chief concern of this organization. The name, SAFER, stands for Safety Advisory Foundation for Education and Research. SAFER was created through broad negotiations between the IWA Canada (now United Steelworkers) and FIR on the coast and the IFLRA in the southern interior for the 1988-1991 master collective agreements in both regions.
SAFER continues to be jointly managed by USW, FIR, and the IFLRA where the industry and the union enjoy equal representation. Under the leadership of two Co-Chairs selected from the union and industry ranks, the SAFER Council coordinates its safety activities and initiatives under the guidance of eight safety advocate board members and six trustees.
