“We are very pleased to welcome Orca Specialty Foods on board,” says Hume adding, “Whenever a new industry is represented on the membership it is very important as a symbol to the rest of the business community in BC.”
The BC Safety Charter now has 134 signatories, well ahead of its target of 90 for 2014, and is now well-represented in most business sectors in BC.

The landmark document, representing a commitment to lead and promote the highest level of health and safety culture within their organizations and to work together to promote the cause of safer and healthier workplaces in BC, was launched in October of 2011 and has been growing steadily ever since.
