Chainsaw Safety Course

This course is aimed at producing a chainsaw operator who is able to safely demonstrate and apply the knowledge for chainsaw use contained in the Approved Code of Practice. It is designed for the occasional user as an introduction to operating a chainsaw in a workplace and can be customised to incorporate specific company policies and procedures.

Trainees will be able to demonstrate and apply their responsibilities under the requirements of the Health and Safety legislation in relation to chainsaw operation. This is not an advanced course and does not cover tree felling.

Best practice is completion of refresher training every 2 years.
