Standards

State Standards

There are twenty-eight OSHA-approved State Plans, operating state-wide occupational safety and health programs. State Plans are required to have standards and enforcement programs that are at least as effective as OSHA's and may have different or more stringent requirements.

OSHA

This section highlights OSHA standards, Federal Register notices (rules, proposed rules, and notices), preambles to final rules (background to final rules), directives (instruction to OSHA staff), letters of interpretation (official interpretation of the standards), state standards, and national consensus standards related to logging.

Frequently Cited Standards

OSHA maintains a listing of the most frequently cited standards for specified 2-6-digit North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes. Please refer to OSHA's Frequently Cited OSHA Standards page for additional information. For Forestry and Logging use NAICS code 113 in the NAICS search box.

Other Highlighted Standards

General Industry (29 CFR 1910)

Federal Register Notices

  • Logging Operations. Final Rules 60:47022-47037, (September 8, 1995). Corrects and amends the final rule on Logging Operations which was published by OSHA on October 12, 1994 (59 FR 51672).
  • Logging Operations. Final Rules 59:51672-51748, (October 12, 1994). Replaces the existing standard at 29 CFR 1910.266, that had applied only to pulpwood logging, and thereby expands coverage to provide protection for all employees engaged in logging operations.
