WAC 296-54-58110

Helicopter logging—Landing.

(1) The landing drop zone must be large enough for the longest logs to be landed without endangering the landing crew.
(2) Landing crew must remain in the clear until the load is placed flat on the ground and chokers are released from the hook.
(3) Landings must be constructed with minimal slope for drainage in the drop zone and a decking area to prevent logs from rolling.
(4) The approach to the landing must be kept clear and long enough to prevent tree tops from being pulled into the landing.
(5) Landing personnel must be notified when chokers are being picked up.
(6) If the load will not release from the hook, the hook must be on the ground or at eye level, whichever is safer, before employees approach to release the hook manually.
