Whilst clearing vegetation from a roadside ditch, a chainsaw operator made contact with the running chain of his chainsaw and the outer fabric of his protective chainsaw trousers.
No injury was sustained.
The operators colleague knew there was an issue regarding the stump, further communication between the team may have highlighted the risk and allowed for further assessment to be made.

Quad Bike Accident
Insist on Safety
Planning for Exceptional Weather

A Template ‘Machine Inspection Record’ shown in the Safety Bulletin attached below and allows the operator to record this evidence on a simple form.
The layout is designed to suite all machines and covers main checks required on a daily basis. This is only a template and can be edited to suite the individual.
