FISA 608 is launched

The new FISA 608 Guide for Tree Shears and Grapple Saws has been launched.

This is the result of many hours of work by the working group and has been a collaborative effort by FISA and The Arb Association.

The Group was made up from manufacturers, distributors, contractors, forestry companies and the HSE. All worked together, pooling their knowledge, learning from each other about the regulations covering the equipment and the reality of operating the equipment.

The guide follows up some of the issues raised in the safety alert the Group released in April 2021.

The new guide is available to download from the FISA and Arb Association websites.
