Forest Applications Training, Inc. is offering a New Issues workshop…
Over 30 years I have travelled this great country, from sea to shining sea, leading workshops on chainsaw safety and productivity and will continue as long as I am able.
We have decided to offer a new one day Issues Workshop that is composed of answers to the many questions I receive during the years of training. I think it will complement your chainsaw operations in a way that is unimaginable until you sit through it. I say sit, it’s more like work...
Everyone considers the safety issues of chainsaw operations in training of employees and personal use. PPE, Planning and Cutting Techniques - but seldom look to the details of why many chainsaw incidents occur. In listening to saw operator statements over the years, it is blatantly evident that the following workshop topics are some of the root cause. These issues are our new workshop’s focus. The 6+ hours are not comprised of felling, limbing and bucking but more toward getting your equipment ready and remaining ready during your chainsaw tasks. It will not replace our other three days of training offerings.
I am convinced that many safety issues with operators are caused by improper saw selection, lack of attention to or ability to maintain the saw and or chain efficiently, and thinking that all of these are someone else’s responsibility. This workshop is not designed nor intended to be filled by bodies but rather by key people who want to make a difference in chainsaw operations, safety and productivity.
For you or your organization, the Issues Workshop is covering the basics and the advanced details, hands-on and how to share it:
1. Saw Selection for Multiple Tasks
2. Understanding Saw Guide Bar and Chain Combinations
3. Reducing Down Time Maintenance
4. Chain Sharpening - hand tools and mechanical grinding
5. Fuels - Mixing and Understanding Two-Cycle Gasoline and Chainsaw Adjustments
Class Size - 12 Maximum
