top spot

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.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing Com­pa­nies

This com­pe­ti­tion wouldn’t be what it is with­out our par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies.

We un­der­stand the com­mit­ment it takes from them to be part of Top Spot and value their on­go­ing sup­port and feed­back.
