I spent multiple days in Okanagan apple orchards last week, and somehow left without digging my teeth into any fresh fruit. Shocking and somewhat shameful, I know… but my attention was behind the camera for this final round of images with WorkSafe BC’s project on worker safety for Mexican immigrants . Thanks so much to WorkSafe BC, the Mexican Consulate, the Ministry of Labour, and the many Mexican immigrants who eagerly posed in my photographs and carried my camera bag. You’ve been so great to work with. Through this program, Mexican immigrants will be educated on worker safety prior to arriving in British Columbia to work in agriculture. The project will be rolled out in a few short weeks and I wish you all the best, and safest, of outcomes.
Our final shot list was vast and varied. The images include an overview of BC agriculture, proper and improper use of personal protective equipment (PPE), weather, chemical storage, vehicle licensing and enforcement- these are just a few of the images.
