ILA's 56th Annual Conference & Trade Show
May 8 - 10, 2014 in Vernon, BC
Submit Your SAFETY AUDIT at the ILA Conference
This year ILA member companies can submit your safety audits in person to BC Forest Safety Council safety advisors onsite at the ILA's conference.

"The biggest benefit is having the opportunity to sit down face to face with a safety advisor and have your audit reviewed in person. You get to ask questions and receive sound advice and support to take back to work immediately," says Safety Advisor Lisa Reichel.

Over 2,600 companies submit annual safety audits to the BC Forest Safety Council to meet obligations under their SAFE Company certification and to meet requirements for WorkSafeBC's Certificate of Recognition program to receive an incentive cheque.

Interested? To book an audit appointment at the ILA conference on May 8-10, please call the BC Forest Safety Council's Audit Administrator, Clare Craig at 250-739-5172. If you have any questions about your audit or requirements, please contact the Council toll free at 1-877-741-1060 or Send them an email
MaryAnne Arcand in Hospital
We are sad to report that our CILA colleague MaryAnne Arcand is in hospice in Prince George. She has asked that we all continue to work very hard on worker health, understanding personally the effect of longer term health issues. In MaryAnne's words, "Worker health is a key part of being able to work safely."
