Safetree’s How Are We Tracking? dashboard provides a snapshot of forestry’s health and safety performance.
The latest dashboard shows an increase in harm-prevention activities undertaken by the Forest Industry Safety Council in the three months to March 2017. There was a rise in both the number of people awarded Safetree competency certificates and the number receiving Safetree health and safety information.
However, there was a also a slight rise in severe injuries in the three months to September 2016.
You’ll see some changes in the way the dashboard is presented, compared with previous dashboards. The severe injuries data now lags behind other data in the dashboard by six months. That’s because severe injuries are based on ACC claims where someone receives a period of weekly compensation in a quarter, and it can take six months for these claims to be fully processed.
