Safety council updates guide for resource road users

Guide lets readers know what to expect on resource roads and some things travelers should do

BC Forest Safety Council

The BC Forest Safety Council has updated the Resource Road User Safety Guide. It is intended for recreational users or industrial traffic unfamiliar with travelling on resource roads (e.g. delivery vehicles, mining, land surveying, etc.). This guide lets readers know what to expect on resource roads and some things travelers should do to ensure a safe trip. It provides driving guidelines aimed at helping drivers understand how to drive and communicate on resource roads.

Please note this guide provides basic information for travelers on B.C. resource roads. It does not contain maps or area specific information such as radio frequencies or road closures. It should not be considered a replacement for proper trip planning, effective training programs or pre-trip safety briefings. Please contact the BCFSC for more information.
