In May 2018, the NSW Government announced $4.6 million to be spent over four years to support industry to develop a training and certification scheme, to improve the environmental performance of forestry contractors operating in native and plantation forests in NSW. The outcome of this was the development of the national Forest Contractor and Training and Certification Scheme, known as ForestFit™.

ForestFit™ was jointly developed by the NSW Government and industry, led by the Australian Forest Contractors Association (AFCA). The ForestFit™ development project concluded on 30 June 2022.

The ForestFit™ certification program continues, see the ForestFit™ website for details.
