I am hoping that a combination of details found in the following
references will be helpful. After you read over these resources,
perhaps additional clarification will help me to further pinpoint some
additional information to help you.
The BC Forestry Safety Council is working toward establishing safety
performance indicators, but the plan is still in the works and nothing
has been compiled yet.
"Forest safety is becoming a high priority for the forest industry and
the Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) in British Columbia. Today the
creation of the new BC Forest Safety Council (the Council) was
announced simultaneously in Prince George and Nanaimo. The Council's
mandate is to work within the forest industry to eliminate fatalities
and serious injuries and create an environment of working safely and
encouraging improved health and safety programs, performance, and
The Council's key beliefs are that:
* All forest fatalities and injuries are preventable;
* The safety of workers is an over-riding priority; and
* Safety excellence is key to the long-term success of the industry.
Bringing together the entire forest sector under one organization, the
Council will be developing programs and initiatives in four critical
* Promoting Cultural Change to ensure that safety is treated as an over-riding
priority and a shared responsibility throughout the sector.
* Promoting a Safety Conscious Legal Regime in which the laws, regulations and
compliance programs encourage and support safety.
* Developing a Competent and Confident Workforce where workers are trained and
certified and encouraged to work safely.
* Encourage Qualified Companies where safety programs are encouraged and

EXAMPLES from other Safety Initiatives
Here are some examples that might be helpful if you want to take some
ideas and implement them for your own industry use:

The following reports do not highlight actual future performance
indicators, but they do include analysis of safety conditions that
must be addressed in the forestry industry, as well as sample
questionnaires and respondent's results. I am hoping you might be able
to glean some ideas from these reports!
"A REPORT AND ACTION PLAN TO ELIMINATE DEATHS AND SERIOUS INJURIES IN
BRITISH COLUMBIA?S FORESTS." Final Report of the Forest Safety Task
Force, January 2004
"Health and Safety Compliance and Performance: A Baseline Assessment
of Attitudes and Behaviours in the Silviculture Industry." Prepared
for the Forest Industry Safety Association. December 2004
Health and Safety in the Tree Planting Industry
I don't imagine the following report is applicable at all, except
that it includes "Performance Targets and Results at a Glance" for
Worksafe BC, which also helps to regulate safety in the Forestry
industry. It might be interesting to scroll down to that section and
take a look.
I hope these references help! Please don't hesitate to ask for
clarification if I can point in another direction to in an attempt to
narrow my search.
