239 - Encourage some overgrazing during the dry season to prevent buildup of biomass and fuel
240 - Ensure that there is an appropriate number of stock in the pasture to remove potential fire fuel
305 - Use downed braches as a soil erosion/runoff break (sloped areas)
306 - Gravel/pave roads in logging areas
307 - Maintain proper crossings (streams and rivers)
308 - Introduce sediment catchment devices (leaves/branches or other sediment traps)
309 - Practice good log stacking and log piling to maintain production quality during wet times
310 - Use cable logging rather than bulldozers

316 - Expand the use of protective gear and clothing
317 - Introduce forestry workplace condition standards
