FISA are presenting a great new online resource for the sector – aimed at new entrants who have HGV experience – but maybe who have not previously driven in Forest conditions. 

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.
