151 - Establish protected areas over sensitive water catchments
152 - Reforest and rehabilitate forests within sensitive watershed and catchment areas
153 - Place and enforce buffer zones around streams and water sources
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
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
311 - Shift forestry operations to dry areas/islands during prolong rainy periods.
312 - Appropriately zone and spatially plan logging activities within concession areas
313 - Follow and plan forestry operations and activities according to Meteo forecasts and outlooks
314 - Reduce working hours/tasks during rain times
315 - Plan for the extra available labor during rain times, to do other jobs and functions
316 - Expand the use of protective gear and clothing
317 - Introduce forestry workplace condition standards
318 - "Logging operations are compromised: erosion in logging area, muddy conditions, degraded roads and infrastructure, moisture & rust in equipment, machine idleness and breakdowns, wasted salaries/lost income, forgone timber harvests (economic), safety and health of workers. "
