Routine maintenance and service can minimize the hazards of working with chain saws.
A loose chain increases wear on drive sprockets, drive links and bar, and endanger the operator if it climbs out of the track. A chain that is too tight will increase wear on components.
Refer to OSH Answers Chain Saws - Safe Use of Chain Saws for more information.
Add a badge to your website or intranet so your workers can quickly find answers to their health and safety questions.
