Bear Safety

Bear Safety Resource PackageOn-the-job wildlife sightings, including bears, is one of the most enjoyable aspects of working in the woods. However, proper education and safe work practices are critical to ensure your safety and maintain a healthy, human-averse population of bears.

The following is a guide designed to help you and your employees avoid conflicts with bears while in the field and know the proper response to a bear encounter. There is information to help you identify bear signs and species, avoid surprise encounters, manage interactions and minimize the threat of a problem bear.
