Logging brochure: Minnesota workers' compensation claim characteristics
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.
Classes are administered by Hibbing Community College. Pre-registration is required; contact Deb Jacobson at (218) 749-7731 or at email@example.com. All classes start at 8 a.m. If the session is OSHA-only, the class will be in the morning only.
