THIS ISSUE WE BRING YOU THE SECOND round of results for harvesting participants.
And, as in the first round, these latest results reflect very strong achievement by participants. Keep up the good work.
We also need to recognise that top performances can’t come about without acknowledging all crew members, foremen, contractors and the support staff who all work beside or behind these folk to enable them to achieve what they do.
One thing we have noted; while changes to health and safety legislation via the HSW Act 2015 and associated regulations are finding their way into crew H&S systems, there needs to be a focus on ensuring crew members understand some of the implications of these.
Ernslaw One boosts Top Spot numbers
The big news this month is the decision by forest owner, Ernslaw One, to enter the Top Spot programme with crews from across the whole of its estate.
This equates to some 42 additional crews entering the competition from locations as diverse as Tapanui, Gisborne/East Coast, Wairarapa, lower North Island, central North Island and Coromandel.
We welcome all these crews to the competition and look forward to their participation.
Sponsors – They don’t have to do this but they choose to!
Awesome companies, awesome people and awesome support!
They back you and your workmates to succeed as professionals, so why wouldn’t you support them.
They believe in what we do and what you do.
So, a big ongoing thank you to our Strategic Partners – STIHL and NZ Logger and sponsor SWAZI.
The best way to keep our industry working is to get out and support those businesses that support New Zealand.
