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.

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.

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.
