“Logger” – What’s in a Name?

We all understand or are aware of just how dangerous logging is as a profession. It is no job for the faint of heart. It is more than just a risky profession; it is the most dangerous occupation in the United States! In the mid to late 1980s, Ohio saw a 43% increase in accidents within their wood products industry, and everyone was asking the question, “what could be done and how to do it?”
