Ontario snowmobile club volunteers and other volunteer organizations are invited to access training from Workplace Safety North on how to handle a chainsaw safely.

For snowmobile trail maintenance, it’s critical that organization volunteers understand the principles of safe chainsaw operation — from selecting the right chainsaw for the job to using appropriate personal protective equipment.

This half-day training course covers specific safety issues, such as parts and safety features of the chainsaw; proper chainsaw starting procedures; proper grip, stance and cutting technique; danger zone rule; dealing with compression and tension wood; kickback; working near power lines; and how to deal with hung-up trees.

The cost is $75 per person and special group rates are also available.
