Forestry fatalities drop by two thirds in two years

Good news on forestry statistics and support from the Business Leaders Forum for the leadership and improvements in the forest industry.

The article highlights the drop in fatalities to three forestry deaths in 2015 from 10 in 2013. The number of serious accidents also dropped to 79 – about half the number in 2013.

That’s still three deaths and 79 serious accidents too many – so there is still plenty of work for the industry and regulator to do. But the trend is going in the right direction.
