Abstract:
Timber processing can be a hazardous business. From the use of machinery, working at
heights and handling heavy materials to exposure to dust, noise and chemicals, potentially
harmful events can happen at any time. These events can affect a person’s health, for
example causing them to suffer skin and respiratory diseases. They can cause injury such as
a loss of fingers or even death.
These guidelines help:
• identify places where injury or harm could occur
• work out how likely it is that injury or harm will happen
• put in place measures to protect workers and your workplace.
