HEALTH & SAFETY
Tree Surgery with Safety in Mind
On every job, big or small, Future Forestry's number one priority is safety. This includes the wellbeing of customers and clients, their property and our staff on-site.
One key aspect is the management of risk and it is our company policy for every job (whether it be for a major construction job or a small private garden job) to provide a 'Risk Assessment Method Statement' (RAMS) — an important health and safety document that is completed to identify the steps to be undertaken to carry out a specific activity or task in a safe manner. This clarity of thinking and pragmatic approach perfectly illustrates what we're all about as a company — giving care and consideration before, during and after completion of our work to ensure the best results and total safety, always.
Professional Standards and Fully Insured
Working with an experienced and professional company like Future Forestry offers you the assurance that all work will be carried out by fully trained and qualified staff with many operating hours logged with the machinery in use, and that work will only commence once thorough risk assessments are completed. Future Forestry is covered by £10 million public liability insurance — giving our clients the confidence that, in the very unlikely event of something going wrong, there is an excellent policy in place. This is not something that all companies operating within our industry can say.
Care and Attention to Habitats and Wildlife
We work in all kinds of environments — deep in forests and high on the hills in rural areas, on trees near utilities such as overhead power lines, in back gardens close to customers' homes, in areas containing protected Scottish wildlife and everywhere in between. In every case, Future Forestry staff understand how important it is to ensure that constraints are identified at the planning stage, for example carrying out checks for birds’ nests before we begin work. When required, we work in collaboration with ecologists who guide and advise us — ensuring that the work we do does not harm or disturb the habitat or wildlife.
In the past couple of years, through work with the RSPB at Nethy Bridge, we've even been employed to help improve the living conditions of birds like Scottish capercaillie.
