Preventing Silviculture MSI Injuries Guides Available

A joint working group comprising WorkSafeBC, WSCA and Licensees has produced a series of guides aimed at reducing musculoskeletal injuries in silviculture workers. Three guides are available for workers, supervisors and licensees laying out strategies to make workers and workplaces less injury prone. Repetitive strains, overwork and related slips, trips and falls cost the silviculture industry millions of dollars annually in lost productivity, earnings and claim costs.
