Working outdoors always has its own set of challenges, but when you work in remote back-country areas, you must add the risk of encountering wildlife. Your daily Hazard assessments should always include wildlife hazards, but making sure that everyone understands what wildlife is out there, and what to do in case of emergency, are great topics to include in morning tailgate meetings.
It is also worth putting the local Conservation Officers number in your ERP so workers can call in the case of an aggressive animal or incident. (BC: 1877-952-7277 and AB 1877-944-0313)
