Details of Incident / Close Call: 

There have been reports of log trucks and pickups traveling to and from the workplace and not using proper radio protocol. Going to work first thing in the morning is as important as the middle of the day for calling of miles. You are not only calling your miles for the guys that you think that you will meet in the same place all of the time rather than for ALL TRAFFIC – including the unexpected road user or maintenance machine that may be coming in the opposite direction.

We are in the home stretch of this winter logging season. Do not become complacent in radio protocols. It is all of our responsibility to ensure that we follow procedure so that our winter season winds up both successful and safe for all workers in the forest industry.
