Safety Champions – Johnny Albert

A safety induction is an important first-step before visitors come onto any worksite, and it ensures a safe visit. It also tends to be a good gauge of general safety performance at that site.


Clarkys Comment - August

New Zealand’s economic and environmental performance are “joined at the hip”. We need a pure/green New Zealand image to underpin both our safe food exports and our tourism that together make up the bulk of our export earnings. However, the pure/green brand that many exporters rely upon is under threat.


Log Market - August

Unpruned export log prices stabilised in August after their big $8-$15/JAS m3 fall in July. Pruned export logs fell a further $5-10/JAS m3 on the back of weak demand and high stocks in China.


New staff

We have had an influx of new staff over the last month, with Ben, Shaun and Simon all commencing work in the Gisborne region and Sam returning to Rotorua after previously spending some time here during the university holidays.


New Zealand Planted Forest Portal

New Zealand's forests cover 38 percent of the land area, and includes 8.0 million hectares of indigenous forests and 2.1 million hectares of plantation forests. These forests are fundamentally different in their biological characteristics, management objectives, and respective roles in fulfilling the needs of New Zealand society.


Preparing for the NES

Recent training for contractors and staff helps with understanding the new environmental standards and why PF Olsen insist on best practice in environmental management.
