Abstract: Safety Culture Tree tool - improving on-site safety and productivity People are crucial to the success of any forestry business, including its success at health and safety. With that in mind, the Forest Industry Safety Council (FISC) has been working with the industry on an excellent tool called the Safety Culture Tree to help create safe, productive and resilient workplace cultures (see Figure 1). The tool shines a spotlight on the culture in a workplace and reveals what crews, contractors, forest owners and managers really think about health and safety. These attitudes are important because they drive behaviours and practices at work. The tool also offers a process to get crews working on ways to improve attitudes and practices.
