At TimberWest our goal is to get everyone home safely without harm, accident or injury, throughout their entire career.
We understand that in order to accomplish this goal we need to constantly strive to learn best safety practices and adopt these learnings across our operations. And that is why in 2016, TimberWest consulted DuPont Sustainable Solutions, the world’s foremost safety consulting company, to assess our safety values, the state of our safety management, and the quality of our key safety practices. All of our staff and contractors were involved in this assessment.
