Softwood Processors Safety Data Series
FWPA is developing opportunities to improve the way we collect industry statistics in a number of key areas, such as safety. A specific data-sharing portal has been established for the aggregation of safety data and FWPA is providing support to the Softwood Processors Workplace Health and Safety Interest Group.
The Safety Data Series will provide an aggregated data set of lead and lag safety indicators for growers and processors.
In addition to a growers’ interest group, the Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA) has now established the Softwood Processors Workplace Health and Safety Interest Group. The group has received funding from FWPA for secretarial support.
The eight participating companies in the softwood group will use the portal to benchmark safety performance across some standard OH&S metrics, using 24 months of data provided by softwood processors.
