Chain Saw Safety

One of the most common and powerful tools used in woodland work is a chain saw.  However, if not used properly operators open themselves up to some potentially severe injuries.  If you haven't taken a class on how to safely use this dangerous piece of equipment now is your opportunity to do so!

In these classes you will learn about:

  • what the proper personal protective equipment is
  • what should you do even before you start the saw
  • how to properly fuel a saw
  • what are some of the basic items to know about operating a chain saw

Periodically we will work with other groups (such as the Ohio Forestry Association) to offer chainsaw safety courses.  Check here often to see when one is available in your area.
