A.W. Jenkinson Forest Products and A. W. Jenkinson Transport Ltd are pleased to acknowledge the work of the Forest Industry Safety Accord (FISA) being founder members since 2012 when representatives of the Forest industries leading organisations came together to set out the Accord which underlines a commitment from the sector to raise the standard of health and safety in the forestry workplace: www.ukfisa.com
FISA have just produced a great new online resource for the sector – a Forest Haulage Induction Video which can be viewed here. 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 and walking-floors, this also covers drivers of fuel tankers, low loaders and other materials deliveries. A.W. Jenkinson Transport will use this easily accessed online tool to create a meaningful impact on new entrants and use it as part of their induction process and driver apprentice training.
