Chainsaw Safety Level 4
December 8, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm$180 – $200
Participants in Level 4 SAWW training will refine and build upon chainsaw proficiency skills learned in Levels 1, 2 and 3. This course is certified through the Safety and Woods Working (SAWW) training program and is part of a four-level series designed to increase safety and efficiency of chainsaw use.
Participants in Level 4 training will spend most of the day in the field, utilizing techniques to operate chainsaws safely, comfortably and productively applied to challenging situations. This course is dynamic, with material covered depending on the experience and interests of the participants. Topics covered include demonstration and review of techniques per request of participants, planning and executing difficult tree felling, planning and executing advanced limbing and bucking, and working at a production level. Level 4 participants should be fully equipped and prepared to work with and maintain their own chainsaw. Hands-on training gives participants the opportunity to fell, limb and buck at least one tree.
Participants must be prepared to work and bring their own personal protective equipment, chainsaw(s) and tools for maintenance.
