Safety Management Consultant, WCP®, CLP, CUFSP
"Mechanized logging has become incredibly technical. As the pool of qualified workers continues to shrink, it becomes imperative that contractors retain their existing workforce. It is both morally and economically important that everyone leaves work in the same condition that they arrived.
I have experienced firsthand what an injury can do to a small logging crew. When the operator of a key machine is taken out of the game, the whole system can come apart."
