This week saw the first batch of certificates go out to Safetree certified contractors.
Momentum has been ramping up over the last 6 weeks with 170 forestry companies currently going through the programme. The BraveGen team at the Auckland office worked late to get the first batch out, with a second planned for next week.
Watch Kevin Ihaka from Whangarei-based silviculture company FPS Forestry talking about why he got certified, and how it’s helped his business.
Jointly funded by ACC, Worksafe and the forestry industry, Safetree is part of the Government’s commitment to reducing serious harm and fatalities in New Zealand’s workplaces by 25% by 2020.
