Safety Toolbox Talk Chainsaws
Safety Toolbox Talk Chainsaws

A chain can become caught and stop suddenly. This causes the chainsaw to move in the opposite direction, towards the operator.

The chain’s teeth remove small slivers of material at breakneck speeds. The chain’s sharp cutting blade allows it to trim 1/4-inch chips from material.

Chainsaws can produce a loud noise and produce hot parts.

Chainsaws generate a lot of vibration from both the engine and the act of cutting.

Chainsaws fueled by gasoline-oil produce toxic exhaust fumes due to a combustible engine.
Burning oil catches anyone handling it when filling a hot engine.

Precautions against chainsaws are necessary.

Begin with several feet of distance from everyone. Position the chain saw on a stable surface with one foot on the rear handle. Adjust the chain brake and turn off the throttle lockout with one hand on the top handle. Tilt the recoil handle toward your chest.

Doing this causes damage to the starter motor, so don’t jump-start or bump start a chainsaw. Instead, let the engine idle for a few minutes to warm up.

Before starting the cut, hold the saw securely in both hands and keep your feet firmly planted.
Place your left arm in front of the saw as you stand to the side. Use your right hand to accelerate the saw. For left-handed saws, reverse the instructions.
To avoid injury, cut one item at a time. Position the chainsaw on its tip to support it as you trim with its teeth and power. Do not apply excessive force.

Before cutting, engage the saw’s full speed. If you feel resistance when starting the cut, your chain may be dull. Dull chains increase safety risks and the risk of developing HAVS hand/arm syndrome.

Avoid operating the chain saw above shoulder height and never pull the blade toward you.

Before moving or putting down the chain saw, apply the chain brake and turn the engine off. Let the chain saw cool before shutting the engine off.

When transporting or carrying the saw, use a bar guard to cover the chain. Place the saw’s nose facing down and to one side of the body.

If possible, use a transport case to transport any tools during transit. This can be combined with venting the case or keeping it outdoors when possible. Never transport a chainsaw in a vehicle’s passenger seat.

Finding out what a game has to offer requires understanding the controls.

Personal protective equipment is a necessary item for any lab technician.

An ANSI or CSA-approved faceshield is required when wearing eye protection.

Dress properly when handling dangerous materials. Wear gloves, safety boots and earplugs or earmuffs for additional protection. Plus, wear protective leg gear to avoid injury.

When operating a chainsaw, never wear loose clothing, unbuttoned jackets, jewelry or chains, laces or scarves on sleeves that flare outward, or chains on neck or wrist.


Maintenance procedures must be followed.

To remain in good working order, always follow the maintenance instructions outlined by the manufacturer for your specific chainsaw.
In case of need, an owner’s manual is always available.

Make sure the chainsaw is clean, the chain is tight, the blade is sharp and lubricated before using it. Also, check to make sure the guide bar is tightened and the machine is properly oiled. Make sure the drive link, chain sprockets, cutter teeth, and chain catch are in working order. Run the saw at half speed and apply the chain braketo make sure it functions correctly.

Avoid using chainsaws with damaged parts.

Keep safety features such as chain brake interlock, throttle trigger interlock, graduated depth gauges unaltered.

Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations when filling the oil and gas levels.

The DDS requires the EPI to be important.

Before employees begin working, safety talks serve both a management and instructional role.

The theoretical front should be adapted to the company or sector’s reality by a health, safety or environmental specialist or leader. Generic safety talks must be adapted to the reality of company fronts by the HSE professional. Only the one who holds the Safety Talks dialogue can be held accountable for the discussions!!
