Nominations for The Steve Dresser Annual Safety Award and The FISA Safety Award open on 19th August 2019
FISA are looking for you to share your stories when you have experienced an incident, near miss or good practice on site. In order to encourage reporting FISA have developed templates as guides to help you report your learning points from incidents and near misses to help prevent others suffering the same consequences. If you have solved a problem and have an example of good practice then let everyone know.
Further to the focus on haulage and load security across a range of industrial sectors by DVSA, and a recent presentation to FISA by HSE, the strapping of roundwood is under immediate review and consultation is now ongoing with HSE and DFT to clarify the legislation.
