Safe Start Back to Work

A video presentation has been prepared for PF Olsen employees, contractors and for those managing contractors and forestry workers to ensure a very successful re-Start of work under COVID-19, Level 3 restrictions. 

It has three sections, which follow an introduction by PF Olsen CEO – Te Kapunga Dewes.

These sections provide a broad outline and explanation of the content found in the COVID-19 WorkSafe Endorsed Industry Protocolsattached here.

While the Protocols are reasonably detailed, each of the speakers helps us to understand the content in straightforward terms.

They explain how the Protocols apply to various forestry operations before expanding on important features that require extra careful attention.

Everyone associated with our forestry operations should view this video, read the Protocols are become familiar with them – it is going to take a concerted and joined up effort if we are to be successful.

Additionally, each of the speakers encourages the workforce to focus on the management of the usual forestry risks alongside applying strict controls to defend against the very newly identified risk we have come to know as the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The video will help to guide our thoughts toward this focus, just as we do, each year during our January Safe Start Up events. Indeed, this re-start will be among our most important ever Safe Start Ups!
