Behavioural safety is vital for forestry sector

Health and safety is now a vital ambition of a new agreement between organisations in the forestry industry.

Last month, the Forestry Industry Safety Accord (FISA) was launched at an event attended by over 80 people, with the move following a safety summit last year that urged workers in the sector to decrease the number of serious and fatal incidents, reports the Safety and Health Practitioner.

FISA chair Steve Laver told the news provider: "Contractors, particularly those workers who operate outside a cab or on the open hill, are the most at risk and should be the focus of attention."

Mr Laver emphasised that the sector's performance is three-times worse than the construction industry, adding
that it must be improved.

Last month, Gloucester City Council trialled health and safety sessions at the Moreland Trading Estate, where members of the authority's safety team discussed a number of topics in a bid to improve the welfare of construction staff.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801466592-ADNFCR
