These meetings are in response to the latest forestry fatalities.
You’re being asked to talk about safety with staff, crews, forest managers and forest owners.
What else can be done to stop forestry workers being killed or seriously injured?
Tomorrow Safetree will send out resources people can use at these meetings.
What we want you to do
We are asking everyone in forestry – forest owners, managers, contractors, foremen and crews – to talk with each other about safety, and to listen to any concerns or suggestions people might have.
In the last week two young men have died in our forests – taking the death toll to five this year.
There is no job in forestry that’s worth one life – let alone five.
Tomorrow we will send out resources to help you reflect on your role in safety, and to help you talk about safety with staff, crews, forest managers and forest owners.
