Forexpo 2000 Safety Award Winner

Forexpo 2000 Safety Award Winner

EUROPEAN RECOGNITION, OSCAR SECURITE 2000 PRIZE TO A leading Central-European special exhibition FOREXPO, dedicated to the development of forest- and wood-related technology, awarded System Logmatic a new Finnish product and method, the esteemed Encouragement Prize in the face of some tough competition . The jury’s decision was influenced, first and foremost, by the overall safety features of System Logmatic as well as its general properties.

The accomplishing of improved safety when making household firewood has been found to be a central problem in studies conducted in this area. For example, VTT Finnish Technical Research Centre states in its research results (no. 293 ), that more than 94% of the accidents involving the use of an axe took place in normal use and less than 4% of these accidents were caused by incorrect use. Thus, the study reports, approximately 4,000 Finns per year are injured to such an extent that they need to seek medical attention despite the fact that they had used an axe in the normal way.

This figure applies solely to Finland, with a population of 5 million people, which corresponds to less than 1,000th of the world population. Consequently, one can only guess at how many people injure themselves the world over in connection with firewood splitting. It would appear then that Logmatic Wedge-Axes could do away with a lot of global pain.
