Training and Resources

 

A key purpose of the BC Sand Stone and Gravel Association is to promote safety and training within the industry. The Manager of each mine is responsible for ensuring appropriate training for all staff and documenting that training. In this section, we provide links to some safety and training information that is readily available from the internet.

Safety professionals have said ‘If it isn’t written down, it didn’t happen’. Document your training.
