The Vermont Logger Safety and Workers’ Compensation Insurance Program: Are Your Logging Contractors Properly Insured?

The Vermont Logger Safety and Workers’ Compensation Insurance Program: Are Your Logging Contractors Properly Insured?

For many years, workers’ compensation insurance has been prohibitively expensive for Vermont’s logging contractors.  To address this challenge and improve industry safety, we’ve launched the Vermont Logger Safety and Workers’ Compensation Insurance Program.  This webinar will introduce the program, share new online resources, and outline the role of foresters, landowners and contractors in verifying and documenting proper worker’s compensation insurance for logging contractors and subcontractors also working on the site.

Presenters:
Sam Lincoln, Deputy Commissioner, VT Dept. of Forests, Parks and Recreation
Stephen Monahan, Director of Workers’ Compensation and Safety, VT Dept. of Labor
