Safety and Comfort in an Uncontrolled Environment 770767

Statistics from insurance companies and census bureaus show that workers in the logging industry suffer unusually high accident and fatality rates. Significant improvements in woods safety can be realized by mechanizing manual operations. Taking the worker off the forest floor and placing him on a machine can increase safety and productivity. Providing an enclosed operator's station on the machine offers safety as well as comfort. Minimum sound levels, temperate environments, and good visibility are some of the features that contribute to operator safety and comfort in an uncontrolled environment.
