Course Description

Chainsaws are one of the most common hand-held power tools among all industries. This course is designed to educate workers, of all skill levels, who use a chainsaw about proper risk assessment, PPE use and fit, chainsaw safety features, maintenance, use, and handling. Participants will gain an understanding of chainsaw reactive forces and hazards associated with felling trees and cutting wood or brush.

Our all-female team of instructors will use safe, hands-on, and practical work planning strategies during this course to cover topics including saw transport, starting, cross cutting/bucking and limbing, understanding compression and tension, and dealing with spring poles. Felling of small trees (trees of approximately 10 inches in diameter at chest height – 10” dbh) will be demonstrated and practiced on log sections or trees depending on site availability. There is a strong focus on risk assessment, safety and ergonomics.
