BC Forest Safety Ombudsman Report

The BC Forest Safety Ombudsman has released a report today stating injured forestry workers in remote or rural parts of the province must wait too long for emergency medical care.  And the report calls on the provincial government to consider providing equal access to medical care for all BC residents. The report released Wednesday morning identifies gaps in emergency medical transportation for workers in rural parts of the province. According to Forest Safety Ombudsman Roger Harris, forestry workers and rural residents have little guarantee to timely medical services in the event of an emergency.
