Abstract Description of a project carried out jointly by the Swedish Logging Research Foundation, College of Forestry and the National Board of Occupational Safety and Health to contribute to a drastic reduction in accident frequency and severity rates in forestry. The components of the project, which are described in detail, include: survey and analysis of the nature and causes of forestry accidents; development of technical and organisational aids to increase safety in forestry; development of overall safety programmes; dissemination of the results to all categories of forestry workers. Recommendations for continued improvements in safety in forestry are made on: technical development work; safety in small-scale forestry; training; new wage forms and new forms of work; safety work and its organisation.
