Chainsaw Safety and Maintenance Training

Chainsaws are used extensively by a wide range of people in many industries.

The chainsaw is of great assistance when fast cutting timber is required. But, if the chainsaw is not properly maintained or is used incorrectly its potential for causing injury cannot be underestimated.

Chainsaw Safety and Maintenance Training teaches us that every chainsaw operator should always be aware of the dangers which relate to the operation of a chainsaw. The combination of a regularly maintained chainsaw with the correct personal and operational safety procedures should ensure trouble free and successful operation of the saw.
