The Forest Industry Safety Accord (FISA) has updated this safety guide following industry feedback. It has also updated example photographs of forestry industry welfare provision.
Forestry workers often work in isolated and challenging locations and are expected to undertake difficult tasks to a professional standard. The provision of facilities for their general welfare has been required by law since 1992.
Forest workers should be provided with the legally required welfare facilities, as outlined in the guidance.
This forestry guidance document offers suggested ways of complying with the legislation.
