THE FOREST INDUSTRY STANDARD

Forwarder contacts overhead power line – Dangerous occurrence

The FWM worksite scoping visit had identified a safe machine unloading area, this had been marked on the worksite map and detailed on the documentation. Any proposed deviation to the work plan should be agreed with the FWM - there may be safety or other factors of which you are not aware. If your machine does come into contact with an overhead power line, always follow the guidance in the FISA ‘Look up, Stay alive’ leaflet.
