Today’s work in the woodland had to be stopped when a child on a bike was found inside a taped-off area playing “chicken” with the tree-harvester.
It is hard to over-state how dangerous something like this is. When the harvester driver is working, the equipment is noisy and the driver’s attention is focused on the trees.
There is a significant danger that anyone approaching the machine would not be seen and so at risk of serious injury.
Would parents please warn their children to stay well away from the equipment while work is being carried out.
