FIEA safety conference: Forest floor successes
Wednesday 4 Jul 2018
“Some of our most inspiring forestry safety specialists are those with hands-on experience in both crew culture and harvesting technologies. They have been out there doing it, earning the respect of their peers,” says Forest Industry Engineering Association spokesman, Gordon Thomson.
“For this our 4th National Forest Safety Conference we’ve got a great group of practical speakers. Many of them, like Les Bak and Wiremu Edmonds, have earned respect from men and women on the forest floor. They bring practical experience and a down-to-earth approach. Forestry people value advice from people who have been out there doing safety change with boots, and attitudes, firmly grounded,” adds Thomson.
Registrations are now open for the August 2018 conference series running in Rotorua and Melbourne. Thanks to great support industry, led by principal event partners McFall Fuel and VicForests, a special on-line early-bird delegate registration offer is now available for a limited time. Discounted rates are available for groups of 3 delegates from the same company. See: https://forestsafety.events
