Significant injuries caused by falls on site - August 2012

Two notable falls on site in the past month have resulted in injury.

The first accident happened to a contractor working to restock a site that had been subject to heavy windblow before harvesting. As a result of the heavy windblow, the ground conditions were very rough because of the high number of uprooted stumps and large timber logs on the ground used by the harvesting machinery in place of brash. This increased the likelihood of slips and trips on the site. The contactor suffered a broken arm when he fell.
