MOFGA’s Common Ground Education Center
Chainsaw Safety Level I:
- Learn the basics of saw mechanics, operation, maintenance, and safety
- Learn and practice the latest in safe felling techniques
A two-day course covering many aspects of chainsaw use, including the basics of saw mechanics, operation, maintenance, safety and a chance to learn and practice safe felling techniques.
The first part of the day will be informational with some hands on time, but the second half of the workshop will be devoted to hands-on practice and instruction. All students are expected to provide a tuned saw, tools, PPE (steel toed boots, leg protection, hearing, eye and head protection) and gloves. This equipment must meet CLP/OSHA standards.
We strongly encourage participants to invest in a good set of chaps, chopper's headgear and boots.
