The Timber Trade Industrial Association (TTIA) assists small businesses with a comprehensive range of services. TTIA’s services provide practical help for people starting up their own business and for those looking to expand established operations in the forest and forest products industry. TTIA is a completely independent, non-profit, federally registered employer organisation, with an emphasis on giving prudent and commercially realistic advice. As 30% of our members are businesses with up to five employees, and another 22% have up to ten employees, we have a great deal of experience in handling small business issues specifically relating to industrial/employment relations, OH&S and workers’ compensation matters.
Help is available to members by phone 24 hours a day, 52 weeks of the year including a comprehensive back up of training courses, publications and briefing sessions. TTIA keeps members updated on changes to Industrial Relations, Workplace Health & Safety and workers compensation. Throughout these member briefing sessions, valuable contact can be made as opportunities are provided to meet with other like minded members.
As well as the TTIA Digest, members can call on assistance in Legal, Industrial, Workplace Health & Safety, Workers’ Compensation and Noise and Dust Management matters.
