SAFETY – Harvesting Operation

Felling and processing trees and loading trucks are hazardous activities. Large machinery is involved and the ability of operators to hear and see beyond the immediate area of operations is often restricted. Remaining trees can be de-stabilized and may fall or drop branches unexpectedly. For these reasons:

ALL PUBLIC ACCESS TO THE PLANTATION, INCLUDING HVP ROADS, IS PROHIBITED FOR THE FULL DURATION OF HARVESTING OPERATIONS.

 

If you have any queries on any aspect of the harvesting operation or would like to draw our attention to any relevant matters please contact HVP Plantations on 53390000.
