Forestry Good Management Practices: Feller Buncher


The logging industry has been considered one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States. According to NIOSH, "In 2010, the logging industry employed 95,000 workers, and accounted for 70 deaths. This resulted in a fatality rate of 73.7 deaths per 100,000 workers that year." With hazards such as falling trees, rough terrain, tail swings, and logging equipment, workers often face significant risks.

Our Risk Control Consultants regularly visit logging operations to identify potential risks and develop practices to reduce risks. Use these Good Management Practices on your next job to help keep your workers safe.
