The Safety Library holds a wide range of items. These can be filtered using the categories listing on the right-hand-side or bottom of the page.
The refreshed 2019 FISA Guidance on Managing Health & Safety in Forestry (GMHSF), is now available to the UK forestry industry.
This FISA guide is new to the forestry industry and will be released with request for feedback to FISA. Comments will be fed back to the Worksite Operations Working Group and the guide will be reviewed eighteen months after release. Having this review period will assist in getting the guide right for the industry; this is important as we want to encourage the industry to step forward and improve the approach to welfare provision on forestry sites.
