Safety ... it re­ally is ev­ery­one’s busi­ness!

Australian Forests and Timber - - SAFETY SUMMIT -

THE FOR­EST In­dus­try Safety Sum­mit in March has a great line up of in­spir­ing and prac­ti­cal speak­ers, many who have al­ready de­liv­ered safety out­comes for their teams and clients.

For­est In­dus­try En­gi­neer­ing As­so­ci­a­tion man­ager, Gor­don Thom­son, said the case stud­ies they bring are sure to bring re­sults at the con­fer­ences to be held 1-2 March in Ro­torua and then 7-8 March in Mel­bourne.

“The for­est in­dus­try has de­vel­oped ma­jor new safety im­prove­ments in both cul­ture in the work­place and tech­nolo­gies to re­duce harm on the for­est floor,” said Gor­don. “For the first time FIEA has teamed up with the For­est In­dus­try Safety Coun­cil (FISC) to or­gan­ise a work­shop as part of the Safety Sum­mit.”

Th­ese two-day spe­cial­ist con­fer­ences will cover (among other things) lead­er­ship and safety cul­ture case stud­ies; moral and le­gal obli­ga­tions in prac­tice; the im­por­tance of CEOs walk­ing the talk; Health and safety ini­tia­tives around forestry and wood trans­port op­er­a­tions, plus:
