The logging industry is very important to our economy as the timber harvested during logging operations provides raw material for many consumer goods and industrial products. It is a physically demanding industry and can be very dangerous thus leaving a lot of exposure for work-related accidents, illness and fatalities. Despite the industry’s strong emphasis on safety, the logging industry continues to have a high rate of fatal workplace injures.
A large portion of work-related injures and fatalities occur in four occupational groups – fellers, choker setters, limbers, and buckers involving trees, logs, snags, or limbs.
