Use of winch diggers – OPS, FOPS and ROPS

FISA had a recent enquiry about the requirements for Operator Protection System (OPS), Falling Objects Protection System (FOPS), and Roll Over Protective System (ROPS) when using a remote controlled winch attached to an excavator.

Roadside Harvesting

FISA received a query from an FWM responsible for a site with active felling of woodland adjacent to a trunk road. 

The response outlines that site planning must take place to ensure that the tree works keep within the wood where possible, and the traffic management plan and roadside safety measures are developed and also put in place.
