Topics change yearly based on the biggest risks identified by the insurance industry and topics that are requested by contractors. Our safety training’s qualify for CLP credit for renewal.

Safety, Our #1 Priority
Since the PLC of Maine started 23 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 $10.5 million to PLC members since its inception in 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.
Below you will find documents designed by the PLC to facilitate safety meetings, safety inspections, first aid procedures and many links helpful safety resources.
