Abstract
This logging safety manual is intended to help train new fallers. Working as a faller is the most dangerous job in Oregon, and safety training is vital. This manual may help both trainers and trainees to cover safety issues completely, and remember key points to bring down a tree safely every time. Written materials, though, cannot replace hands-on training in the field with an experienced faller. Be sure to train before you work in the woods. Safety training is generally available directly from employers in the logging industry. Additional training is available from the Student Logging Training Program, for college students, in the Forest Engineering Department at Oregon State University in Corvallis. Training Program Manager Jeff Wimer developed the Five-step Faller Safety Plan featured in this manual.
