Forestry Sector Guide to Safety (NZ) 2015/16 – Released

NF5-5-Chart-Image-72dpiProtecting workers involved in the New Zealand forestry industry remains a number one priority for principals and contractors. This fact has urged Pro-Visual Publishing to release its next edition of the Forestry Sector Guide to Safety (NZ). Site preparation and planning management both go hand-in-hand to ensure the safety of workers.

In this industry, everyone has a voice. It is as simple as raising your hand and offering useful suggestions to help promote safety when working on-site. In other words, workers and contractors are encouraged to be involved in improving the health and safety systems so that minimal risks occur. However, workers are not solely responsible for this; it is also up to the employers to already have a documented health and safety management system. Safety plans and training are just a couple of factors that are included in this.



Being out on-site all day every day can have a devastating impact on your body; for example feeling like falling asleep when operating heavy machinery. This ongoing state of tiredness is otherwise known as ‘fatigue’ and it can result in serious injuries and fatalities. Remaining alert when operating machinery has never been so important!

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Forestry Sector Guide to Safety (NZ) 2015/16. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
