About the Vermont Logger Safety and Workers’ Compensation Insurance Program
In 2019, the Scott Administration, with support from the Vermont legislature, announced the launch of a new program, designed to reduce the number of injuries and workers’ compensation insurance claims on logging operations through the delivery of modernized safety training; adding the availability of loss prevention consultations on logging operations; increasing the number of properly insured logging contractors and providing clear guidance to professional forestland managers and forestland owners about how to determine that they are contracting with a properly insured logging contractor. This will make Vermont’s forest economy a safer place to work, with reduced costs, and increased opportunity.
