"Timberlands Limited is committed to managing a safe working environment to reduce the incidents that cause fatalities and serious disablement."

Safety Comes First

Health & Safety starts with YOU! We want everyone that enters the forests and sites we manage to return home safely at the end of each day. To achieve this requires robust safety policies & procedures, competently trained staff & contractors to carry out tasks, effective communication, and commitment by all parties to follow the safety policies and procedures to reduce risk. Please refer to our Forest Access page for specific Forest Access and Closure information.
