Safe Work Practices

The Asphalt Technical Advisory Committee have developed Safety Tools & Resources to assist companies in the road building sub sector with their safety programs. Originally called the “Road Builder Group,” the ATAC committee came together after the asphalt production industry faced a series of severe accidents and near misses. ATAC serves as an ongoing industry committee that now provides the BCCSA with valuable insight and works to develop tools that address workplace safety. 

Safe Work Practices (SWP): A set of positive guidelines or “Do’s and Don’ts” on how to perform a specific task that may not always be done in a certain way. (Example: Use of ladders, safe lifting).
