The WHS standard and assurance design project will leverage the project framework and expertise being used to design and pilot the ForestFit certification currently under development by the Australian Forest Contractors Association (AFCA).
Collaborating with industry and key stakeholders, AFCA is currently designing and piloting ForestFit Certification. ForestFit is setting the standard for recognising forest contracting businesses that demonstrate safe, environmental and sustainable business practices within the forest industry.
Australia has one of the highest set of standards and requirements for forestry operations in the world.
ForestFit is being designed and delivered for forestry contracting businesses with the intent of being customised for national delivery.
