Contractors, hauliers and others wishing to work on Forest Services or Forestry England land will need to show that they
comply with the requirements set out in this PPG.

Visitors may expect Forest Services and Forestry England to provide some level of first aid and in some situations we will have a duty of care. This guide provides you with a background to that and signposts further information that will assist you with delivering the essential requirements.
