BC Solid Waste Safety Statistics
CWMA has worked with the Workers' Compensation Board to report on safety related statistics for each Classification Unit (CUs) considered to be within solid waste and recycling related fields.
At end of 2001, injury rates in Classification Units that solid waste firms are registered in are going in the opposite direction of the provincial trends - increasing instead of decreasing. On average, industry WCB premiums are increasing as a result. CWMA hopes to assist our members to make their workplaces safer, and therefore eventually lower premiums.Following is access to three important reports:
