With the recent implementation of new work health and safety regulations across New Zealand, Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with the New Zealand Institute of Safety Management, has released the latest edition of the Forestry Sector Guide to Safety this year with a focus on the changes and responsibilities in relation to the new laws.
When it comes to forestry operations, previous or current regulations are not immune to the fundamental changes that came into effect April this year. These fundamental changes affect all those who are involved in the industry: from forest owners and managers to contractors, workers and others at the workplace.
Apart from the regulation requirements and amendments this year’s guide covers a range of other topics including:
- PCBU duties and responsibilities.
- Tree felling.
- Worksite meetings and training.
It is important to know where you stand when it comes to health and safety in your workplace. This guide promotes the importance of safe forest operations, the safety procedures implemented when handling machinery, as well as who’s actually responsible for health and safety operations at work – everyone.
