Epidemiology and prevention of helicopter logging injuries

Epidemiology and prevention of helicopter logging injuries

Safety and health in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries: 529-544

Helicopters have been successfully utilized in transporting timber while helping prevent erosion secondary to decreased road construction in logging areas. Unfortunately, however, numerous helicopter crashes and fatalities have occurred, and several of these are described. An overview is provided on the hazards of helicopters and sling-load logging operations. Recent experience with the use of helicopters in logging operations in Alaska is presented.
