Product description

Manual tree falling is a high-risk activity that has resulted in serious injuries and deaths in British Columbia. In this video, forestry professionals share their personal stories of the long-term impact falling incidents have had on themselves and on their crews. These stories highlight the importance of supervision in identifying and managing risk — no matter the size of the operation — and how supervisors in B.C. play a key role in making sure hand fallers return home safe at the end of the day.

Aims and objectives

Recent fatalities and serious near-misses within the manual falling industry have raised questions around the adequacies of faller supervision and support from management. The goal was to raise awareness on supervising to the level of risk within the industry to begin creating cultural and operational change. The ultimate goal is to see a decline in the injury rate.

Target audience

Supervisors and managers
