Guidance on Managing Health & Safety in Forestry


Welcome back. Are you a forestry worker? Do you operate forest machinery? If you do you need to make a practical assessment and gain the right qualifications to use them safely, including the use of quad bikes. You need to make sure there’s enough trained first aiders and facilities on site to treat casualties immediately. Are you spraying pesticides? These can cause skin and respiratory problems and if you’re spraying, you need to be trained and competent to do the task. So landowner’s responsibility – you need to coordinate the activities of the forest environment for health and safety and finding out the hazards, and pass this onto others. Remember for any activities, plan the task properly and make sure anybody that’s affected is told about it. We offer hints, tips and advice throughout the year so please do subscribe to our channel. Thank you.
