Project Description

Client: BC Public Service – Natural Resource Sector

Employees of the BC Government’s Natural Resource Sector (NRS) agencies undertake a wide variety of winter field work in mountainous regions throughout BC. With the diversity of this work, NRS employees can be exposed to avalanche risk. Dynamic contributed to the development of the Avalanche Avoidance Policy and the Avalanche Safety Plan. The avoidance policy serves as the starting point for planning all NRS field operations and provides guidance to staff on avalanche hazard avoidance. Where avoidance is impractical due to the nature of the work, then activities are governed by the avalanche safety plan.
