Product description

This layout planning safety video illustrates hazards that layout engineers identify during their planning process, and explains how these risks can be reduced through cutblock design to improve health and safety for hand fallers. This video also highlights the value of communication and collaboration between layout engineers and harvesting crews. Watch as hand fallers and layout engineers discuss their experiences working in forestry in British Columbia, and hear from WorkSafeBC occupational safety officers about hazards in the industry.

Aims and objectives
