For Immediate Release

McFall Fuel and VicForests show safety leadership as Conference Partners

Industry safety champions in both New Zealand and Australia have come forward to show their safety leadership by becoming Principal Partners to the 3rd FIEA Forest Industry Safety Summit conference series – scheduled for March 2017 in Rotorua and Melbourne.

“The leaders of both McFall Fuel in New Zealand and VicForests in Australia see their teams as early adopters of positive safety practices. So they’re keen to show leadership for others in the forest industries by being proactive in safety,” says event director John Stulen from FIEA.

McFall Fuel CEO, Sheryl Dawson actively promotes safety in every aspect of their company’s operations. McFall Fuel’s strong family values of zero harm, respect, trust, integrity, teamwork and a strong work ethic are reflected in every facet of the work carried out.

“Reinforcing our values by becoming a principal partner to the Forest Industry Safety Summit makes sense on many levels – both for our people and the forest industries we serve,” says Dawson.

Robert Green, CEO of VicForests in Australia is adamant that learnings from previous FIEA safety summits have been valuable in bringing new levels of safety awareness and tools to help their people and their contractors to be more effective in their work with safety further embedded in everything they do.

“Finding new safety thinking delivered by passionate people like Stephen Falk of Switchback and Wiremu Edmonds has brought a great continuous learning opportunity to our management, staff and right through VicForests operations,” says Green.

“We are always on the lookout for new safety learning tools and opportunities so we’re proud to be principal partners to the 2017 FIEA safety summit coming to Melbourne in March 2017,” he added.

“The March 2017 safety conferences are focused on CEO involvement, seamless industry training systems and as always what new technologies are being in the way of seamless safety tools, so we’ve got a lot to offer forest industry people once again,” commented FIEA’s John Stulen.

The Forest Industry Engineering Association (FIEA) is pleased to announce that forestry tree-faller certification expert Peter Sprout from the Forest Safety Council in British Columbia, Canada has been confirmed as a keynote speaker for this paradigm-shifting forest safety conference series March 2017. The summit will run in Rotorua at the Distinction Hotel on 1-2nd March and Bayview Eden Hotel in Melbourne on 7-8th March.
