Description:The main aim of the project is to carry out a detailed analysis of the occupational injury rate in the forestry and logging industry with accent on accidents/injuries that occur when clearing calamity situations. The subject of the project will be to propose methods for effective risk prevention, especially ways of organizing work in crisis conditions in an effort to eliminate the prevailing problems in the field of OSH. Final outputs and current knowledge will be reflected in proposals for specific measures according to the client’s requirements. The outputs will include an analysis of the current state of occupational injuries in timber harvesting, a printed manual summarizing current knowledge in the field of occupational safety in timber harvesting and calamity management, and a methodology containing suggestions and recommendations for reducing the risk of occupational injuries and increasing the level of OSH in logging and forest work.
