Supervision in Manual Falling

Champions for Change

Manual tree falling is a high-risk activity that has resulted in serious injuries and deaths. 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 play a key role in making sure fallers return home safe at the end of the day.
