Logging is one of the most hazardous occupations in the United States. Professional loggers should follow standard safe logging procedures. Have a conversation about safety with the logger before any cutting begins. When you visit an active logging site, remain visible to the operators, wear a hardhat and an orange vest, stay away from equipment when it is operating, and avoid going near any trees that may be leaning. Do not speak with anyone operating equipment until the person has stopped the machinery and signaled that it is safe to approach.
