AFPA and AFCA Safe & Skilled Program

Safe and Skilled was a new program launched in September 2018 to raise awareness of and enhance the safety of employees in Australia’s forest industries.

At AFPA’s September 2018 quarterly meeting, Chair Greg McCormack along with Australian Forest Contractors Association (AFCA) Chair Adan Taylor, signed a Member Statement of Commitment of essential training standards. The charter commits that members of AFPA and AFCA ensure that their forest workers hold a statement of attainment in approved and nationally recognised units of competency, relevant for forest operations. LITA delivers most of the units of competency endorsed under the program.  For further details see the AFPA and AFCA websites or our training products at Training.

Along with the signed charter, Safe and Skilled also launched 12 lifesaving commitments to enhance safety in forestry operations.

LITA collaborate on a wide front with its industry partners such as training funders, forest growers, contractors, suppliers and other training associations to ensure we stay at the forefront of new developments in the industries we serve.
