Safe chainsaw handling course now available for volunteer organizations

By COS staff

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.
