“The Forest Industry Safety Accord (FISA) are pleased to present a great new online resource for the sector –

A Forest Haulage Induction Video which can be viewed at

As the haulage industry currently works through some well documented driver challenges, this is aimed at new entrants who have HGV experience – but who have may not have previously driven in Forest conditions.

As well as the obvious timber trucks, this also covers drivers of fuel tankers, low loaders and other materials deliveries .

It is hoped that Haulage companies will use this easily accessed online tool to create a meaningful impact on new entrants and use it as part of their induction process.

Neil Stoddart (Creel Consulting), Chair of the FISA Forest Haulage working group commented  

“Driving an HGV in the forest presents many additional challenges compared to Highway work. This video provides an efficient induction covering some of these key factors.

This type of training can save time, reduce employee turnover and ensures operational efficiency while at the same time providing the new start with baseline safety critical information, hopefully making them feel valued and helping them establish good communication with their employer and foresters alike’
