Workplace Safety Consultation -- Logger safety education, on-site training

Minnesota OSHA Workplace Safety Consultation administers the education program for the loggers statute (Minnesota Statutes 176.130) to ensure all Minnesota loggers have the opportunity to obtain safety training. Through assessments collected from the wood mills, funds are redistributed to logger employers upon completion of safety training by their employees.
