Job Safety & Health Quarterly, v10 n4 p32-39 Sum 1999
Logging is now the most dangerous U.S. occupation. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) developed specialized safety training for the logging industry but has been challenged to reach small operators. An OSHA-approved state program in Minnesota provides annual safety seminars to about two-thirds of the state's full-time loggers, delivered near their homes. Logging accidents and insurance rates have fallen. (SV)
