According to North American Training Solutions, chainsaws are one of the most common yet hazardous tools used by all outdoor industries including arborists, utility workers, forestry professionals, trail maintenance workers, municipalities, oil and gas workers, sawyers, landscapers, and first responders.
What makes chainsaws unique is the fact that the bar and chain cannot be guarded as with most other saws, which requires specialty personal protective equipment (PPE) as well as a high level of competency by the workers that use them. Whether felling a tree or performing tree maintenance, knowing how to safely and efficiently use a chainsaw in any industry is a must.
