The Forest Industry Safety Council and Safetree are running a survey to get a stocktake of views from people involved in forestry.
We’re keen to get as many views as possible so we’ve extended the closing date for the survey to 5pm Sunday 4th November.
The survey covers things like leadership, worker engagement and risk management. The results will tell us what you think about what’s helping and hindering health and safety in forestry. It will also help us evaluate the work done by FISC and Safetree to date, and help shape the future work programme.
The survey is being run by a third party called Ubiquity, so individual responses are confidential and won’t be seen by us. Only aggregated responses will be reported. It will take about 10 minutes.
