Abstract: After 10 forestry workers were killed on the job in 2013, an independent review drafted a blueprint for lifting the industry’s safety performance. This plan included the creation of a peak body - the Forest Industry Safety Council - to champion safety improvements. A year on from its establishment, FISC National Safety Director Fiona Ewing provides an update on its work.
