Chainsaws are a useful tool to help clean up our trees after this icy winter we have experienced, but they are also powerful tools, making them very dangerous.
Improper use can cause serious and fatal injuries. If you use a chainsaw, follow these three safety guidelines:
• Know how to properly use a chainsaw
• Wear personal protective equipment to protect eyes, hearing, head, legs and feet
• Never work alone
Buy a chainsaw you can comfortably handle and that is appropriate for the tasks you do most often.
