Use of Unexpected Events and Management Requiring Conditions in the Training and Management of Loggers

This pilot project is developing a novel system, with a simulated environment, where workers identify potential safety concerns and assign a severity rating to the safety concerns. This system will uncover factors in risk decision making for new logging workers, informing future safety training programs.

Due to COVID-19, we had to modify the project’s approach to the simulated scenarios. This challenge led to a creative engagement format that now allows for broader participation.
