Communication Plans

Communication Plan

A communication plan is an important policy to include in your company safety plan. The owner/boss is not going to be able to be on the job every hour of operations. A communication plan needs to designate who will oversee the job in case of emergencies, threatening weather, and break downs for instances. This plan should also be clear about who will talk to the landowner, the forester, or visitors and should explain the perimeters of discussion whenever the boss is absent.

Communication is so important for efficient and safe operations to happen. For a logging operation to accomplish these two goals communication needs to be maintained between all machines on the job. CB and two-way radios are the quickest way to connect with everyone. Mobile phones are good but are often hindered by poor signals and phones are not as fast and do not alert all the crew at once.
