FISA Supervisor and Manager Training

The demands on the Site Supervisor and Forest Works Manager continue to increase. Having sound technical knowledge to manage and monitor operator technique and performance is an important way in which safety can be improved. FISA has now developed a complementary supervisor course to provide the necessary training update for site supervisors and managers responsible for chainsaw operators.

Compliance

As part of the Refresher programme, and to complement the Operator training, it is also a FISA requirement that the Site Supervisors and Forest Works Managers (FWM) complete the Forest Operations Supervisor Course RUSC01 or FISA recognised equivalent.

What is the Compliance date?

In line with the Operator Refresher training, the deadline for compliance for Supervisors is also 1st October 2013.

Do I need to be a FISA member to be eligible for the Training?

No, the FISA Scheme is about setting a standard within the forest industry and therefore FISA training is available to non–members. One benefit of FISA membership is of course that the cost of any FISA organised training will be at a reduced price compared to that for non-members.
