IMPAC is proud to announce that PF Olsen was the winner of the 'IMPAC best collaboration between PCBU's ' Award at the NZ Workplace Health and Safety Awards announced at a gala dinner at SKYCITY Convention Centre in Auckland on 31 May.

PF Olsen won this award for an initiative initiated by them after two incidents involving fuel deliveries within forests prompted a review of how forest contractors and their service providers worked together.

Multiple PCBU's from a number of companies (such as McFall Fuel), got together to work out the expectations required of service providers coming onto a forest site.

Extensive training of more than 180 people has been undertaken to explain the new requirements has been carried out, with another 200 to come.
