Subchapter 13. Logging and Sawmill Safety Orders
Article 3. Logging Roads and Bridges

(a) Conditions such as deep holes, large rocks, logs, or other similar hazards which prevent the safe operation of equipment, shall be immediately corrected. Obviously dangerous trees and snags which may fall into the road or on passing equipment shall be felled.

(b) Single lane roads with two-way traffic shall be provided with turnouts at points not to exceed 1/2 mile in distance. Adequate side clearance shall be maintained along all truck roads. Railroad tracks and other hazardous crossings shall be plainly posted.

(c) Brush or other obstructions which may block the driver's view at intersections or on extremely sharp curves shall be cleared.

(d) Logging roads shall be watered or treated with road compaction agents to maintain a packed surface with dust reduced to a minimum.

(e) All traffic shall keep to the right-hand side of two-lane roads, except where the road is plainly and adequately posted for left-hand traveling.

(f) Where road conditions due to rain, snow, ice or fog, are such as to fail to afford adequate braking traction, operations shall cease or auxiliary means of safely controlling the vehicle shall be used.

(g) When doing road building, tractor operators shall not be permitted to work alone if they are not in frequent contact with another person who could assist them in case of emergency.

(h) No equipment, either loaded or empty, shall be swung over workers, or over operating equipment other than the equipment being loaded.
