Timber Equipment Applications Management (T.E.A.M.)
The goal of T.E.A.M. has been to prevent equipment fires from starting in the first place by raising awareness and education so that the participants in any logging operation can focus on adhering to their own best practices.
For the logging contractor this means such things as enhanced operator training and strengthened machine service programs. For the equipment dealer this means such things as increased service technician education and improved maintenance procedures. For the equipment manufacturer this means such things as revised machine designs and upgraded assembly processes. For the equipment insurer this means such things as education and enforcement of logging operation compliance standards.
