Accident rates in logging of windthrown stands


, : Accident rates in logging of windthrown stands. Sveriges Skogsvardsforbunds Tidskrift 71(1): 43-58

On the basis of a study by L. Lendrup specific planning restrictions have been drawn up for certain harvesting methods and environmental conditions with the object of reducing accidents during the logging of windthrown timber. However, these restrictions may lead to incorrect resource allocation as they are subjective and lack an economic basis. In order to quantify the accident risk in economic terms, a cost/benefit analysis was made, on the principles used in Swedish road-safety research.

In particular, materials must be tolerant to the water vapor and to the acidic impurities...
