• Publication Date: 05/02/1989
• Publication Type: Proposed Rules
• Fed Register #: 54:18798-817
• Standard Number: 1910.266
• Title: Logging Operations


OSHA proposes to issue employee safety requirements for all logging
operations, regardless of the end use of the forest products (saw
logs, veneer bolts, pulpwood, chips, etc.). This standard would
replace existing standards in 29 CFR 1910.266 which apply only to
pulpwood logging. The proposed standard would address the unique
hazards found in logging operations, and would supplement other
general industry standards in 29 CFR 1910. The proposal would also
require training of employees in this labor-intensive industry.
