Safety Training

Accident Investigation

Accident Investigation is a reactive measure to try to determine why the event took place. Only by understanding the root cause of an accident, will you be able to implement mitigations to prevent recurrence. Identifying contributing factors along the way is an opportunity for companies to continuously improve their health and safety program.

Chainsaw Safety Awareness

NEW PROGRAM

Chainsaws are powerful and valuable tools. They can be found on most farms and in homes where wood is used for heating systems. They are also widely used for property maintenance and are the principal cutting tool for nearly half of commercial timber production. Despite the benefits, potential accidents are high and injuries sustained are usually severe or even fatal. Proper maintenance and use reduces the risk when using these tools. Proper felling, removal of limbs and bucking techniques also reduces the chance of injury.
