Safety is marked as a key value at Gilbert Smith Forest Products Ltd (GSFP) in the North Thompson Valley community of Barriere, B.C.
“We put significant effort into the continuous improvement of our Safety Program to ensure the health and safety of our workforce,” says GSFP’s Human Resources and Occupational Health and Safety Coordinator Darcey Woods, CRSP.
“In May we celebrated Safety and Health Week (May 1-7) with ‘Safety Bingo’, which gave all of the employees a chance to win an E-Bike along with a number of other prizes that were awarded at our Safety BBQ.”
Wood says the annual Safety BBQ was held on May 10, with GSFP celebrating two years with zero time-loss accidents in the Manufacturing division of the company, and over 19 years in the Woodlands division.
“We also achieved another milestone on Thursday, June 2 – a zero recordable incident rate,” said Woods, who explained, “A recordable injury is one that requires treatment beyond basic first aid.
“That means no recordable injuries at GSFP in the past 12 months,” concluded Woods.
