The board, staff, and members of SICA are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic crane accident in Kelowna yesterday. Our hearts grieve for the families, friends, and co-workers of those who did not return home from the job-site last night. Our deepest condolences go out to those who have been affected by this catastrophe.
All workers in construction, beyond those on site that day, may need some support after a traumatic event like this.
We encourage all construction employers to check in with their employees in order to provide support and resources to anyone needing assistance processing this traumatic event.
If you are covered under the BCCA Employee Benefit Trust plan, the FSEAP Crisis hotline and MindBeacon’s mental health services are available to your employees.
