Hazard Recognition

Logging operations involve felling, moving trees and logs from the stump to the point of delivery, transporting machines, equipment and personnel to and from and between logging sites. Loggers need to recognize the hazards associated with marking danger trees, felling, limbing, bucking, debarking, chipping, yarding, loading, unloading, and storing logs. This page addresses safety practices for all types of logging, regardless of the end use of the wood. These include pulpwood and timber harvesting and the logging of sawlogs, veneer bolts, poles, pilings and other forest products.
