In order to solve problems in working environments, especially forestry operations which are classified as hard job, the physical health of the staff should be studied and monitored. The objective of this research was to monitor the health of staff in forest management plans of western part of Golestan province. In this study, 42 forestry personnel including forest guards, administrative personnel and heavy machines drivers were selected. Anthropometry information including age, height and weight of personnel was measured annually and then body mass index (BMI) and basal metabolic rate (BMR) was calculated. The blood pressure of personnel was measured using pressure meter for five years (2010-2014) and the cholesterol, triglyceride and blood sugar was measured for three years (2012-2014). Results showed that the BMI with high value for administrative personnel was significantly more than that of other groups. Weight of forest guards was more ideal and natural in compare to other groups. Basal metabolic rate for heavy machines drivers, administrative personnel and forest guards were 1804.88, 1766.63 and 1747.98 calories, respectively. Blood sugar and cholesterol significantly increased during years of 2012 to 2014. Forest guards had the highest blood sugar and heavy machines drivers had highest blood cholesterol in compare to other groups. Lowest triglyceride was observed for administrative staff. Ninety one percent of administrative personnel had normal systolic blood pressure and 100% of them had normal diastolic pressure which indicates better condition in compare to other groups.
