To achieve Tier 1 your company must apply for the program, implement the LSI Accident Prevention Program(s), and tailor it to your company’s needs.

If your company only conducts cable logging, download the logging accident prevention program.

If your company is a timber falling company, or has timber fallers along with cable logging, please download this timber falling accident prevention program.

Achieve these steps and your company will receive a 5% discount on its workers’ compensation insurance premium.

Tier 2

Tier 2 is achieved by the completing a workers’ compensation premium audit and a Safety and Health consultation visit. After any findings have been corrected, your company will receive a 10% discount on its workers’ compensation insurance premium.

Tier 3

Becoming fully LSI certified includes the completion of an independent third party safety audit. The safety auditor will review your company’s work practices by verifying all LSI safety requirements are met. After any findings are addressed your 20% discount will be applied.
