July 3: CSST Issues Forestry Safety Reminder
In this period of intense forestry, CSST reminded employers to properly train and supervise staff to avoid safety incidents. On average, three workers are injured every day in the forestry sector. In activities such as clearing or planting, workers’ backs and joints are particularly vulnerable. During maintenance and mechanical repairs, workers may be amputated or crushed by a moving part. And drivers on forest roads must deal with conditions that increase the risk of collisions or overturning vehicles.
