FISA Safety Bulletin

Further to the bulletin issued in Oct 19 - Core guidance and background resources on this topic remain as: http://www.hse.gov.uk/fallsfromvehicles/index.htm and http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg401.pdf  

Receivers of timber should ensure their Risk Assessments / work procedures are compliant. Most commonly this will be through the provision of gantries and platforms in timber yards to allow access for safe sweeping off.

The FISA Forest Haulage Working group have been specifically reviewing Work at Height in relation to flat HGV trailers, in particular where drivers have to erect / disassemble bolster pins in the forest.
