Getting Your Logging Safety Program Started
Logging is considered to be a hazardous profession by any standard. Accidents happen suddenly and you can be assured that they will impact your business. Depending on the nature of the accident, slowdown or stoppage in production can be expected. Limiting the impacts and frequency of accidents can be successfully accomplished by implementing a thorough safety program. Kennedy Forest and Safety Consultants can help get your safety program started and operating at peak efficiency.
