Forestry Works Manager Awareness

Who is this for?

The FWM, or Forest Works Manager, is the person or organisation who commissions the work on a forestry site.

In 2022, FISA (Forest Industry Safety Accord) stopped delivering FWM awareness training themselves, instead this is now organised and delivered by specialist training providers, such as ourselves.

This one day course is designed for Forest Works Managers, Site Supervisors, Team Leaders and those managing forestry operations. This course will provide a general oversight and awareness of the responsibilities of a Forest Works Manager.

This course is suitable as a Refresher for those who have previously undertaken FISA FWM Training.


1 days Training


max. 10 per course


This is normally completed at mwmac Ltd, near Builth Wells, Powys.
If you have enough people for a full course, we are able to run this course on your site (subject to a pre-course visit).




This is a training only course, supported by FISA, designed by mwmac Ltd.
