Prince George, B.C. – The third annual Interior Safety Conference is coming back to Prince George in May. Hosted by the BC Forest Safety Council, the theme this year is “Leading Safety – Building Strong Supervisors” and will include sessions on building stronger teams, communicating with different generations of workers, and managing fatigue at work. Gerard Messier, manager of program development with the BC Forest Safety Council, says it will also focus on steep slope logging. “We will look at everything from how to make chip haul trucks more fuel efficient to equipment on steep slopes.” He says the main conference will take place Saturday, May 27, and says they’re also looking at running a shorter event a day earlier.
