23 February, 2017

Launch of the 3rd Edition of the South African Cable Yarding Safety and Operating Handbook

Cable yarding handbook

A proud accomplishment for 2017 is the much-awaited updated edition of the "South African Cable Yarding Safety and Operating Handbook". The Handbook details the wide range of cable yarding systems and the variations that can be used. The Handbook is a general guide, to be used in conjunction with the original equipment manufacturers (OEM's) operating and maintenance manual/s. It also does not replace any legislative requirements and occupational health and safety acts or regulations, but rather complements them by providing safe work procedures and protocols. Furthermore, the Handbook should also be used in conjunction with other FESA handbooks, such as the Guidelines for Forest Engineering Practices in South Africa (2014), the South African Ground Based Harvesting Handbook (2010), and the South African Forest Road Handbook (2005). All these handbooks are available through the ICFR website (www.icfr.ukzn.ac.za).
