Logging & Chainsaw Safety
Logging has consistently been one of the most hazardous industries in the United States. Medical costs for chainsaw injuries amount to about $350 million per year in the U.S. And in 2006, 95 loggers were fatally injured. Obviously there is a need for safety training in this area. This training may be some of the first training you’ve received on logging. Or it may be a refresher. Chances are, you are already familiar chainsaws and other logging equipment. If not, it’s likely that you will receive additional training and be paired with experienced loggers while you master these skills. In the meantime, this course should give you a good start.
