    Construction Safety Network’s new guide aims to explain WorkSafeBC regulations - Richard Gilbert, Journal of Commerce, Canada
    WorkSafeBC reports that every year, more than 6,800 construction workers are injured and about 200 are seriously injured in B.C. Work-related accidents killed 155 workers in BC’s construction industry between 2000 and 2004.

    Construction businesses that fail after one year have 2.5 times more injuries than construction firms that last five years or more.
