Safety ... it really is everyone’s business!
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:
“Ten Years On” – Experiences from Forest Safety Council veterans in British Columbia
“Primary Industries Safety Leadership – You don’t have be big to make a difference” – Mavis Mullins
Innovations in Steep Slope Harvesting – Leadership from Contractors
Chainshot – A technology paradigm shift coming soon
The last Safety Summit, held back in 2015, attracted more than 500 forestry representatives.
