Are you a ... landowner?

A landowner controls the land on which trees the forestry work takes place.

Key tasks

  • Coordinate the activities of the forest environment for health and safety.
  • Find out about hazards on and around forestry worksites and pass to the forestry work manager (FWM).
  • Ensure that the work on a worksite does not affect the health and safety of other people.
  • Maintain responsibility for what is happening on your forested land and on land that provides access to tree work or forested areas.

Other landowners include:

  • Farmers
  • Local authorities
  • Government department and agencies
  • Railtrack
  • Utility providers

When planning for forestry work on land under your control, organise the work so that you avoid risks from the outset.
