Completely avoidable

Editor: Regarding Worksafe BC reports on mill sawdust.


Re: Worksafe BC reports on mill sawdust

In regards to the story in Lakes District News, Aug. 29 issue – The last paragraph first sentence.  The employees of the mill were well aware of the dust build-up and lack of clean-up.

In some areas I was unable to perform some duties due to lack of clean-up.  It should be the employers/owners that should be made aware of the importance of clean-up above the almighty dollar.

In my opinion, this mess was completely avoidable and could have been prevented.
