Stand up and speak up – Workers

Forestry workers and foremen are being encouraged to get involved in Stand-up and Speak-up for Safety meetings on Monday 28th August.

These meetings are in response to the latest fatalities.

In the last week two young men have died in our forests – taking the death toll to five this year.

We are asking everyone in forestry – forest owners, managers, contractors and crews – to set aside time on Monday to talk about safety.

It’s important you speak-up at these meetings about your concerns or suggestions.

What else can be done to stop forestry workers being killed or seriously injured?

Five forestry workers have died on the job in the last year. There is no job in forestry that’s worth one life – let alone five.

Tomorrow Safetree will send out resources people can use at these meetings.
