British Columbia's OHS Regulation requires workers who fall or buck trees to be qualified by meeting standards acceptable to the Board. Any new worker falling trees greater than six inches in diameter must be trained to the same standard. These standards are outlined in the B.C. Faller Training Standard.
This standard has been adopted by the oil and gas industry and opens the door for fallers in the industry to be recognized as professionals. Enform, on behalf of the petroleum industry, has developed a faller certification program. For further information on the Faller Program, contact Enform at:
