Chainsaw Safety Tips and Training with Andy Wood

Episode #26 | Published August 17, 2020


Chainsaw safety is more than just a pair of chaps and safety glasses. The PPE is only there to help reduce the effect of the mistake you make. To be a competent sawyer or to consistently use a chainsaw safely takes knowledge of the tool, the tree, and the environment.  These combined with good body position, control of the saw, and saw maintenance can delver quality and productivity when you are working in the woods or in your yard.

In this episode, I speak with Andy Wood, manager of Forest Products here at MEMIC about history of chainsaw and logging safety in the North East, how the industry has changed and different best practices that should be in place for any business, not just logging, that has someone running a chainsaw.
