Chain Saw Safety

NONE
Faith's insight:
Clear away dirt, debris, small tree limbs and rocks from the saw's chain path. Look for nails, spikes or other metal in the tree before cutting.Shut off the saw or engage its chain brake when carrying the saw on rough or uneven terrain.Keep your hands on the saw's handles, and maintain secure footing while operating the saw.Proper personal protective equipment must be worn when operating the saw, which includes hand, foot, leg, eye, face, hearing and head protection.Do not wear loose-fitting clothing.Be careful that the trunk or tree limbs will not bind aginst the saw.Watch for branches under tension, they may spring out when cut.Gasoline-powered chain saws must be equipped with a protective device that minimizes chain saw kickback.Be cautious of saw kick-back. To avoid kick-back, do not saw with the tip. If equipped, keep tip guard in place.

Follow steps in the instruction manual for operation and maintenance of your saw.Wear protective clothing; have a first-aid kit handy.Observe precautions in refueling and carrying the saw.Remove nails, wire, etc. from the trunk.Check the top of the tree for "widow makers."Determine where the tree will fall - be sure that no buildings, power lines, or other trees will be hit.Select a safe place to stand when the tree falls.Clear debris from around the tree.Notch the tree on the side in direction of fall, then make corner cuts and back cut.Yell "Timber!" as the tree falls.
