This guide is not a substitute for proper Safety Training. It is meant as a reference only. 

Safety is the responsibility of everyone and should not be placed solely on either management or employees. Management has the responsibility to provide a safe work environment and to properly train employees. Employees have the responsibility to comply with all rules and regulations issued under OSHA. 

This Training Guide was originally published by the Forest Industry Safety and Training Alliance, Inc. (FISTA), Rhinelander, Wisconsin in 1997. It is reprinted with permission from FISTA. It has been reviewed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for use in logging training.
