Logger Safety Initiative (LSI) - Quarterly Training

Logger Safety Initiative Quarterly Safety Training

LSI Program participants are required to fulfill two training requirements which include:

  1. A total of 4-hours of approved formal safety training sessions; and
  2. At a minimum, conduct four (4) LSI program provided safety trainings with supervisors(s) and crew members.

The below training materials have been created for LSI and provided to the LSI participants to complete. The employer and supervisor, if delegated, and all employees engaged in manual logging operations must receive at least four (4) of the LSI safety trainings per calendar year. Training can be conducted by any of the employees or an outside person and can be done as part of regular safety meetings.

LSI participants will complete and document that the training took place as part of their safety minutes. The completion of trainings will be assessed at the annual comprehensive LSI DOSH consultation.
