July 14, 2014, Vancouver, B.C. – The Wood Pellet Association
of Canada, in cooperation with WorkSafeBC and BC Forest Safety Council, is
hosting a combustible dust workshop in Prince George on July 23. 

 

Combustible dust continues to be a significant safety risk
for all wood processing sectors.  The
workshop objectives are: (1) to re-focus the pellet industry’s efforts in
managing combustible dust; (2) to hear from WorkSafeBC about their findings
from the latest round of dust inspections, combustible dust inspection
protocols, and the new enforceable combustible dust policy; and (3) to learn
from one other in an effort to improve collective performance at managing
combustible dust.

 

Advertisment

The one-day event includes a tour of Pinnacle’s Meadowbank
pellet plant with onsite discussions, as well as a pair of workshops at UNBC.

 

Pellet producers are welcome to register by contacting
Gordon Murray at gord@pellet.org.
