Forestry Safety, Part 1
July 31: The government announced a pilot project to improve safety and reduce collisions on forest service roads through the use of standardized radio call procedures. Truckers need to reprogram their radios as they move to different locations to access local radio channels. In the pilot areas, only a single set of radio channels is being used. Findings from the pilot program will be evaluated this fall to determine whether to implement the program province-wide.
