Day of mourning for 160 killed on B.C. jobsites

By Fiona Anderson, Vancouver Sun
Jan Noster, president of the Construction Maintenance and Allied Workers Union, a B.C.-based independent construction union, believes better education and enforcement are the keys to lowering on-the-job accidents.

Education is especially important.'We have a lot of young first-time, inexperienced workers,' Noster said. 'And I don't think we are doing enough to make sure those guys are going home safe every night.

''While employers are certainly doing a better job of ensuring a safe workplace, there still are rogue employers out there that take chances every day,' he added. 'Everyone deserves to make it home at the end of the day safe.'

Of course jan is doing nothing what else can we expect. That sure is a nice point to have the Sun highlight for everyone though.
