Independent Review of Health and Safety in the Forestry Industry – Terms of Reference (3rd Draft)

Hi everyone

We have just received a new version of the terms of reference for the inquiry into Forestry safety.  It includes two of the new points we wanted  covered – the adequacy of training and the use of MBIE investigation reports.  We think now, overall, these terms are acceptable.  They are attached.  Please let us know what you think but more importantly it is now time to start thinking about how we want to be involved.

The Forest Owners are beginning to think about the Review Panel to do the work and are asking for groups to nominate people who would be good.  We want to agree the full panel but also to put forward an expert on employee participation and health and safety systems.  The Review will also need a forestry expert on it in our view, either as an advisor or on the panel itself, to deal with all the industry specific stuff.

We would like to nominate Hazel Armstrong to be on the Review Panel particularly to ensure the issues of  employee participation and systems are addressed.  Hazel is a very experienced Health and Safety expert and lawyer.  She was legal advisor to the Rail and Maritime Union during the Inquiry into rail safety in 2000 after the fifth rail death within a 12 month period.  At that time rail also had a shameful safety record and much changed as a result of the inquiry.  Hazel is an advisor to the CTU health and safety training programme and practices in health and safety and ACC law.  She would do a very good job on the Review panel.

We would like to know if you support this nomination.  The timing is quite tight and we need an indication by the end of this week – please message us your views.  If you have other forestry experts that you think could take this lead role in addition to Hazel, send us these ideas as well. Clearly the Review panel will be small but even if we start collecting up experts to allow us to tap them to help with submissions to the review this will be useful.

Please send any contact to

    but his attitude would once again create more controversy.

    200 for any hysterosalpingogram, an X-ray on the female reproductive
    organs. After age 35, 18% of pregnancies can certainly in miscarriage.

  7. The best choice for many women is to purchase a pair of cowboy boots in either a boy’s or a small men’s size.
    The Cream colour provides a fairly romantic and wintery visual appeal to an outfit
    – thus these particular boots will most likely go quite ideal with
    augg men long men far far more “wintery” assortiment this kind of as cable knit sweaters (or other versions of knit sweaters) collectively
