Increased Public Activity

FISA Safety Bulletin

Update – the FLS design team have created a “Big Trucks – Don’t Block Entrance” sign to help combat the issue of menace parking. This was as a result of the FISA Forest Haulage WG raising parking in forest access/egress points as an increasingly common issue that creates a menace to timber haulage operations. The sign is freely available to download below for the industry to utilise as required.   

As we move out of lock down and into summer, this year will see staycations and a related increase in public interaction with forests. This is great but creates issues when interfacing with operations.

AFAG Initial Notifications of Arboriculture & Forestry Fatalities

The HSE are sharing these notifications on a trial basis over the next 6 months. Because the incidents are under investigation exact details will not be available and will not be provided with these notifications (either because the facts haven’t’ been established or release may prejudice enquiries).
