IN T R O D U C T I O N T O WOME N ‘ S C H A I N S AW S A F E T Y

October 12 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

This one-day course will introduce women to the fundamentals of safe chainsaw use. We’ll cover  fundamental topics such as personal protective equipment (PPE), how to maintain a safe saw, starting the saw, and the mechanics of safe body posture.

Participants will have a chance to cut tree cookies, and will watch a tree-felling demonstration.  This does not prepare participants to buck up logs or cut down trees. This class is good  preparation for more hands-on, two-day Women’s Chainsaw Safety and Maintenance courses.

Cost: Free. Please bring your own lunch.
