Forestry is a high risk industry with a high percentage of fatal error and major injuries. Forestry employees work in extreme circumstances where human errors and fatigue can cause serious injuries.

Lone-working risks in forestry


Fatigue can cause human errors and lead to serious injuries especially when working outside normal hours and alone in an isolated area.

Falls, slips and trips

Falls from heights are the most common cause of injury and death due to working at height.


Cold or wet weather and circumstances can reduce concentration and make manual tasks more difficult and put the lone-worker in danger.
