The level of hazards associated with forestry transportation is extremely high. In 2014–2015, FPInnovations had identified several commercially available technologies that could be adapted to forestry operations to improve safety and reduce the hazards faced by truck drivers and the public travelling on Canada’s highways and resource roads (Hickman, 2015). One of the technologies identified in this report is electronic stability control (ESC), which requires immediate attention as it will be mandated in 2017 for all heavy-duty trucks in the United States (National Transportation Safety Board, 2015). Transport Canada (2015) is expected to make ESC mandatory to align with the mandate in the United States. Therefore, the scope of this note is to explore the implication of this mandate on Canadian forest operations. Different stakeholders’ perspectives are documented, and the technology and knowledge gaps that need to be addressed to implement this system in an off-highway application are identified.
