    Seriously concerned about the safety of its workers at Myra Falls, NVI Mining Ltd. is working with Wilsons Transportation to have seatbelts installed on buses transporting workers to and from the mine site and Campbell River.

    But, CAW Local 3019 PresidentBill Garton is singularly unim-pressed.

    Having seatbelts on the busis stupid. Thats an idea with no thought put into it whatsoever, he said.

    Wearing seat belts on buses will subject passengers to neck inju-ries from slamming into the top of the seat in front, he predicts. He also believes seatbelts wont help in a rollover situation.

    Myras Human ResourcesSuperintendent Dave Keiver tells the Mirror: We have entered intodiscussions with our carrier look-ing into seatbelts on buses.

    In mid-December, a Wilsonsbus rolled over on treacherously icy Highway 28 near Elk River Main Line. Twelve of the 14 rid-ers on the bus were taken to hos-pital. Two passengers, Pat Jeffery and Dennis Fawcett, had serious rib, lung and back injuries. At the time of the crash Wilsons Trans-portation Vice President John Wilson said preliminary investi-gations by the company and the RCMP placed 100 per cent blame on the icy conditions.

    The union president believesthe blame for the crash rests with the condition of the roadway. He

  • charges that the public portion of the highway up to the Gold River turnoff had not been kept up.

    Gar ton says the mines road surface crews do a good job of clearing the road from the Gold River turnoff on to the mine, but the same cannot be said for Department of Highways contractor, Emcom. Id say they were slow.

    Emcom Services Inc. Road Superinten-dent Justin Burgers could not be reached for comment. How-ever, RCMP Constable Mark Blacklock says road conditions were changing rapidly and highways crews were on the scene of the accident soon after it happened. I dont see it as an issue because they were already on the road.

    Keiver says the com-pany has conducted its own investigation into the accident. That probe will likely remain an internal one, but Keiver said it contains nothing unusual.

    He did say the effort to get seat belts installed is not the result of the

    investigation. That ini-tiative springs from the fact that there were people injured on the bus and our concern that steps be taken to prevent similar inju-ries in another acci-dent. Very quickly the seat belt question was out there.

    Keiver says part of that process involves a learning curve regarding why vari-ous industry operators do or do not have seat belts installed.

    R e g a r d l e s s o f whether the industry has them, we are seri-

    ously looking into what it is going to take to equip our (buses) with seatbelts. Most buses are designed (to with-stand) forward impact. In this particular situ-ation the bus kind of slowly slid off the side of the road and lay down on its side.

    Keiver said in dis-cussions with Wilsons we are finding that it is not as simple as just deciding we will install seatbelts on the cur-rent seats. There are a lot of technical issues that we are trying to get a handle on about

    the design of the seats, how we can attach (seatbelts) to them and how they are anchored to the structure of the bus.
