CosmanParkes Review Report
An independent review of FISC’s work was conducted by CosmanParkes to identify how well the recommendations of the 2014 Independent Forestry Safety Review had been implemented. CosmanParkes found that while most of the harm reduction initiatives recommended in the 2014 report had been put in place, there was room for further improvements in the leadership of health and safety in forestry. The outcome of the independent review was considered by FISC at a strategy day at the end of last year, where we considered how these insights could be used to refocus FISC’s future strategy and work programme. There is clearly pressure across the board for the scope and intensity of FISC’s work to increase. However, doing that in any meaningful way would require additional resources, as existing resources are fully committed rolling out and supporting the existing work programme.
FISC is working with FOA and ACC to meet this challenge.
