The guidelines are set out in five main sections. Chapter 1 provides a background to the forestry sector and the labour issues encountered in forestry work. Chapter 2 is a general introduction to managing labour standards in forestry. Chapter 3 presents guidelines in a modular format that enables forest managers to implement them and inspectors to evaluate that implementation. Chapter 4 contains general guidelines for organizing labour inspections and assessing compliance. The annexes comprise sample checklists and aides-mémoires for forest management and labour inspectors on the issues to cover when implementing and evaluating labour standards, bringing together the guidelines in Chapter 3.
