Pedestrian Walkways and Cross Walks have been installed at the BSI Sugar factory premises to enhance the safety of pedestrians especially during the crop season. The factory is an area where large vehicular traffic such as cane trucks, loaders, forklifts, cranes and trailers are in continuous movement. If you are an employee, cane farmer or visitor to the factory, your safety
is enhanced by following these pedestrian guidelines:
• Use designated crossing areas and pedestrian facilities such as walkways, sidewalks and crossings.
• Look to the left, right and over your shoulder before starting to cross.
• Be sure to stop at all pedestrian crossings when driving inside the factory premises.
Attention Pedestrians within Factory Limits! During the off crop season, BSI takes the
opportunity to organize several trainings for its staff in particular on Operational, Health & Safety. One such training occured on August 16 and 17, 2016, for forklifters and telehanders; the training was conducted by the US company Forklift Training Systems. The two day training, tested the proficiency and safety techniques of operators and updated them with requirements for the safe operation of Powered Industrial Vehicles (PIV). The goal of Belize Sugar Industries Limited is to continuously certify all other PIV operators, with the goal of reaching the global standard when it comes to the safe operation of powered industrial vehicles.
