How to Save Workers in the Most Dangerous Profession in the US

With a rate of workplace fatalities 30 times higher than the national average, logging is the most dangerous profession in the U.S., including the military.

This is reflected in the costs of insurance; loggers in Washington State pay premiums that range between $6.51 and $26.94 per hour. But for all the dangers of traumatic or lethal injury, there is something that is not so much a risk as a given outcome.

Almost 100% of all long-term loggers sustain such severe musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) that they result in a career change before the age of 50. By a wide margin, MSDs represent the largest percentage of compensable occupational claims in the logging industry.

Find out how government, industry and medical experts joined forces with dorsaVi to extend the careers in logging.

What People are Saying About Us

“You might miss something that deviates 3 to 5 degrees from the normal range of motion, which doesn’t seem like much. However when it comes to the playing field, that 3 to 5 degrees could be the difference between injury and a pain-free game.”

-Loren Landow: Director of Sports Performance at Steadman Hawkins Performance
