This handbook of safety guidelines for partial-cutting operations was produced cooperatively by the BC Forest Service, Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks, and the Workers? Compensation Board of BC, at the request of industry, labour and other interested agencies. The handbook does not replace WCB Regulations; rather, it supplements them by providing examples of safe work procedures to follow when partial cutting. Complying with WCB Regulations, following general safety regulations while harvesting (see the list of references), and applying the guidelines in this handbook will reduce harm and injury to forest workers. It has been designed for use by planners, logging supervisors and forest workers involved in partial-cutting operations. While there are differences between coastal and interior operations-terrain, timber size, weather conditions, etc. - these basic safe work procedures apply to the entire province.
