Many factors contribute to Forestry & Logging being one of the most dangerous occupations. The tools and heavy equipment they use in the work zones pose many hazards. It is important that the personnel is trained to handle the risks associated with the falling, rolling and sliding of the heavy trees/logs. The environment also contributes to additional hazards on the jobsite. Rough terrain, harsh weather conditions and remote working locations all present an increased safety risk to the employees working in this industry.
