$afety, Our #1 Priority

Since the PLC of Maine started 20 years ago, there are several initiatives that have benefited the membership and the logging industry in Maine.   One initiative is the Acadia Insurance Dividend Program, which has returned over $6 million to PLC members since its 1999.

The PLC takes the issue of safety seriously and encourages PLC members to commitment to safety, not only to reap the benefits of the Dividend Program, but to protect employees, lower costs and sustain the longevity of businesses.

The PLC is committed to the safety and well being of its membership for the very same reasons.  In the long run, if someone does not go home at night because of a life threatening injury, the risks do not outweigh the rewards.

As we see it, one of the greatest risks to sustainability in the logging profession is distracted driving.  There are now more distractions than ever, including cell phones, which are contributing to mounting losses.  Keep in mind, if a driver is not distracted, the cars approaching him/her could be!

During the 2015 Spring Safety Meetings we focused on distracted driving in the logging industry and the impact that it has on businesses and lives.  We would like to encourage PLC members to review driving policies, encourage and reward safe driving, educate employees on the costs related to accidents, and please reach out to the PLC for more information.

Below you will find documents designed by the PLC to facilitate safety meetings, safety inspections, first aid procedures and many links helpful safety resources.
