Forestry Safety For All

Forestry Sector Guide to Workplace Safety 2015 – Released

FOR12-4---Chart-Image-FINAL-72dpi[2]Forestry operations involve numerous hazardous activities and safety risks. This can be due to unforeseen circumstances in forestry environments. As a result of this, Pro-Visual Publishing, along with Australian Forest Contractors Association and Australian Forest Growers, have recently released the Forestry Sector Guide to Workplace Safety. This Guide provides beneficial information to all employees, contractors and forestry managers.

There is a variety of safety procedures established to ensure the correct transportation, loading and unloading of logs. This is in accordance with relevant guidelines and requirements. Due to the amount of work conducted in a forest environment, road construction must be properly planned and prepared. This is to ensure the safe delivery of equipment and logs. Another prominent topic on this year’s edition concentrates on health and safety responsibilities. Each department in this industry has different responsibilities to maintain a health and safe work environment. For example, personal protective equipment must be worn by forestry workers to comply with the training and instruction provided.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Forestry Sector Guide to Workplace Safety 2015. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
