“Safety first” is a phrase we have all heard, and as an employer, it is your responsibility to make sure your workers are fully protected against hazards that could potentially cause serious physical harm or even death.
Working in a sawmill has been identified as one of the most dangerous occupations with workers exposed to a range of dangers relating to woodcutting, log transportation, unguarded machinery and electrical incidents.
To minimise the risk of injury or death, it is vital to manage the potential hazards in the workplace with sawmill safety barriers as well as an adequate sawmill traffic management plan to provide life-saving direction to workers and visitors, ensuring the safety of workers and the safe movement of traffic.
