Safety Guidelines for the Forestry Sector

Forestry Sector Guide to Safety 2014/15 – Released

NF5-4-Chart-Image72dpiIt is with great pleasure to announce this year’s edition of the Forestry Sector Guide to Safety. Pro-Visual Publishing, in collaboration with the Log Transport Safety Council, has produced an informative and updated guide that aims to provide safety awareness and procedures for forestry contractors and workers across New Zealand.

Safety is an important topic, particularly in this industry, as there are various dangers that could potentially arise. This is one of the featured topics addressed in this year’s guide. Forestry companies are advised to comply with the Health and Safety Employment Act 1992 and associated Regulations to ensure that workers are completely aware of the emergency and first aid procedures when working alone or with others. This year’s edition also focuses on the use of Personal Protective Equipment, including, but not limited to, safety helmets and footwear, hearing and eye protection, as well as respiratory protective devices and much more.

Working in the forestry industry, it is necessary to be aware of the many safety features accompanying equipment and machinery. Various other topics are mentioned in the guide, such as transporting of necessary materials used in the industry, the ground-based extraction operation, and tree felling and its causes.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Forestry Sector Guide to Safety 2014/15. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
