A FISA member has raised concern regarding access to HGV trailer beds and this has serious implications for the timber haulage sector.
Other industries have developed fall prevention systems and FISA will review these and discuss with the Road Haulage Association to see if there is a cross over application that will suit forestry. FISA will also discuss any potential exemptions with HSE.
The FISA Haulage WG welcomes all ideas, suggestions and solutions to reduce potential risks to operators, operatives and allow for legal compliance. Email these to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be forwarded to the WG.
