The Forest Safety Ombudsman was created as the means for safety issues to be raised and discussed in as free and open a manner as possible. The Ombudsman provides an impartial, confidential and timely voice within the sector as it is recognized that at times there may be concerns with possible adverse repercussions to those raising the issues. As well, the relative inequality of size and influence of parties within the sector may make the raising and discussion of safety issues difficult.
