Toolbox Talk from Scottish Woodlands and AW Jenkinson Transport
A timber lorry carrying a load of 1.7m posts overshot a sawmill entrance, the driver braked too severely, causing the bunks of posts in the bed of his trailer to ‘shift’ and part of the front bunk load to spill out onto the public highway and verge.
While ‘it is ultimately the individual drivers ‘legal’ responsibility to ensure his load is safe and secure’. It is responsibility of the whole of the Forest Industry, for its reputation and for the safety of the wider General Public (our communities, our families and friends) to ensure we are all working, both ‘in and out of forest’, to our own agreed and binding ‘Codes of Practice’.
