The Canadian Building Component Safety Information Book (BCSI-CAN) is the truss industry’s guide for job site safety and truss performance. The document was prepared by the Structural Building Components Association in collaboration with the Truss Plate Institute of Canada and is referenced in TPIC 2014 and is available for viewing online here:

The Truss Plate Institute of Canada would like to acknowledge the contribution of the work done by the Western Wood Truss Association of Alberta for permission to post this video here.

This above video, produced for the Prevention Division of the Worker’s Compensation Board of British Columbia, is an excellent resource for demonstrating accident prevention in regards to truss installation.
