Forestry

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The forestry industry is a very labour intensive job requiring long hours of focus, awareness and alertness.

There are a number of physical, environmental and ergonomic hazards that could cause injury or illness to workers, including:

  • Noise
  • Working outdoors (heat or cold stress)
  • MSIs
  • Cuts, lacerations and amputations
  • Driving
  • Slips, trips and falls.
