August 2020 Monthly Safety Alert – Wildfire Hazards: Fire Behaviour

Wildfire Hazards: Fire Behaviour

Both forestry workers and fire crews responding to wildfires will be exposed to risks and hazards that exist in a wildfire environment.

Fire behaviour can range from a smouldering ground-fire to a fast-moving flame-front that can quickly pose a threat to workers on the ground. Working safely around wildfire requires workers to make appropriate decisions on what to do when confronted with different types of fire behaviour, or different potentials for fire behaviour.

This Safety Alert will provide crucial information to help effectively assess fire behaviour – August 2020 Safety Alert
