FISA 707

Roundwood in Ports

July 2023 - Shipping of roundwood has steadily increased over the last 18 months, not least with the storm Arwen clear up in NE Scotland. Many ports previously unused for timber for many years are now being utilised for multi modal shipping of timber and it was pertinent for FISA to engage with this sector to create a base guidance document that can be referenced by ports and hauliers / suppliers.

FISA Safety Guide 707 has been developed by those within the forest industry who are transporting roundwood by sea. FISA 707 provides general advice on working within ports through to loading and unloading at the quayside and loading and discharging timber vessels. Helpfully to those not acquainted with transporting roundwood through ports, an appendix is provided giving definitions and health and safety roles and responsibilities.
