3 April 2023
ForestWorks has commenced work on a project to update the forest industry’s Log Haulage Manual and produce instructional videos to support some important knowledge and skills required to transport harvested timber safely. These resources are being created for industry, by industry, to make Australian workplaces safer.
Those with experience in log haulage have the opportunity to provide feedback on the current Log Haulage Manual and improvements that can be made. Feedback is being collected from 10 March to 18 April 2023.
To keep informed about project updates and opportunities to provide input and feedback, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your name, organisation and the state/region where you are based.
For more information and instructions on how to provide feedback, visit the Log Haulage Manual and Video Project webpage.
Funding for this project has been made available as part of the NHVR’s Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative (HSVI), supported by the Australian Government.
