Harvestia’s safety culture
At Harvestia, safety is a core part of everything we do. It is extremely important to us to ensure the safety of both our employees and visitors at logging sites. This can be done by following our simple safety instructions. It is important to remember to inform the harvester operator in advance of your arrival by calling. The phone number of the harvester operator can be found in the safety sign by the road that leads to the logging site. By the safety sign you can also find safety equipment that is helmet and safety west. Use this equipment throughout your visit at the site and return it back to the same place at the end. Please notice that you always visit at a logging site at your own risk.
How to have a safe visit at a logging site of Harvestia:
• Inform a harvester operator in advance of your visit by calling. That way the operator can prepare for your visit. The number of the operator can be found in a safety sign.
• Wear safety equipment, that is helmet and safety west, that can be found by a safety sign. High visibility colours make it easier to see you and they are a critical part of your safety at a site.
• When arriving at a site, wait for the harvester operator to notice you and stop their work. Always remember to keep a 90 meters -safety distance to forest machines.
• Remember to be aware of, for example branches and logging residues, while moving at a logging site.
• When you leave a site, return safety equipment back to its original place.
