This just in from the Alberta Forest Products Association (AFPA). At that organization’s annual general meeting in Jasper last month, the health and safety awards were announced.
Two of the winners operate in the Slave Lake area, which was why the AFPA got in touch with The Leader. They are Northern Reforestation Inc. and Broad Brothers Contracting Ltd.
Northern Reforestation – a tree-planting outfit – received the award for Health and Safety Excellence in 2017. Broad Brothers won an award recognizing three years of Safety Excellence (2015 – 2017).
Neither company attended the meeting in Jasper, so there are no photos.
