Chainsaw Safety

June 10, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

June 10, 2017  9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Career Tech Center, Cadillac
A chainsaw is arguably the most dangerous hand-tool known to mankind. Yet, it can be purchased without proof of qualifications or a certification. The course is offered by the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration and taught by instructor Chuck Oslund, retired surveyor and firefighter for the USDA Forest Service. His seminars teach why each saw operator must have a safety system, the elements of a good safety system, mental aspects of safety, safer chainsaw handling techniques, and the state-of-the-art safest way to fall a large diameter tree. If you currently operate a chainsaw, or plan to purchase a saw in the future, you need to be aware of these concepts to help you use it safely. The workshop is free of charge. Pre-register by contacting District Forester Larry Czelusta at 231-775-7681 ext 3 or email larry.czelusta@macd.org for more information. Lunch and snack will be provided, $10 donation requested.
