FOR12-4---Chart-Image-72dpiThere are a number of hazards associated with forestry operations, but several steps and measures can be taken to eliminate or reduce risks to forestry workers. Pro-Visual Publishing, in cooperation with Australian Forestry Growers, and the Australian Forest Contractors Association, has released the latest edition of the Forestry Sector Guide to Workplace Safety, with interactive Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities.

Incorporating this innovative technology into the guide has created a space for interaction and a window for more information and resources relevant for the forestry industry. Simply scanning over any AR capable content using the free Pro-Vis AR App will allow users to instantly download relevant content to their smart device.

The guide covers a range of topics including:

· Risks associated with infield chipping.

· Control measures for sawmilling.

· Selecting approved forestry machinery and equipment.

· Health and safety responsibilities in forestry operations.

Along with these topics, the guide also covers inspections of plant and equipment, as well as what to do when repairing and maintaining machinery. It is an essential resource for forestry operations managers to ensure the health and safety of their workers across Australia.
