The Forest Resources Association’s Southwide Safety Committee has updated one of FRA’s most in-demand publications, the Timber Harvesting Safety Manual. This well-known resource includes a new section on in-woods portable grinder safety as well as additional miscellaneous safety recommendations and revised OSHA-required reporting procedures for fatalities and serious injuries.
This manual (FRA publication # 17-A-1) is an ideal general safety text for logger training and education programs. Additionally, logging contractors may use the material for their in-house loss control programs and may choose to incorporate the FRA Timber Harvesting Safety Manual into their written safety compliance policy for their logging and log trucking employees.
The 71-page manual covers logging safety issues comprehensively, under the following headings:
- General Rules of Safety
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Guidelines
Safety Guidelines for Hand Tools
Safety Guidelines for Chain Saw Operations
Safety Guidelines for Woods Equipment Operations
General Operational Safety and Loss Control Guidelines
Safety in Transportation
Hazard Communications Program
Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control Plan
The manual price is $6.00 for FRA members and $12.00 for non-members. (Website login is required to apply the member discount.)
