Safety & Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness is all about ensuring that our community has the training and resources to respond effectively to a large-scale threat, such as a wildfire, earthquake, flood and pandemic. The discipline of Emergency Management sets as its guiding priorities the:

  • Preservation of life and health
  • Protection of critical infrastructure
  • Protection of the environment
  • Protection of business continuity

Occupational Health and Safety

Occupational Health and Safety is all about recognizing our duty of care to each other. Employees at every level must be familiar with, and comply with, the requirements of all British Columbia Occupational Health and Safety legislation as it relates to their work processes. Employees are also expected to comply with all of the Nation’s own health and safety procedures and standards, including the requirement to report all incidents.

As an employer, the TRTFN has a number of responsibilities to its workers. These responsibilities include:

  • to provide the information and training necessary to carry out their jobs safely
  • to provide and maintain the necessary equipment, devices and PPE, and ensure that they are used
  • to identify potential hazards through regular inspections, and either eliminate or control those hazards    without delay

Our goal is a healthy, injury free workplace for all employees. By working together in all parts of this program, we can achieve this goal.
