In this video, forestry professionals share their personal stories of the long-term impact falling incidents have had on themselves and on their crews. These stories highlight the importance of supervision in identifying and managing risk – no matter the size of the operation – and how supervisors play a key role in making sure fallers return home safe at the end of the day.
