Chainsaw Cut to Protective Clothing

Scottish Woodlands - Toolbox Talk

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.

When considering how to deal with specific issues, we should always be asking ourselves:

  • Elimination - do we even need to do this?
  • Substitution is this the right tool for the job?
  • Control what else can I do to control the risk?
  • PPE is it appropriate and fit for purpose?

Machine Maintenance Records

Machine maintenance is critical to the use of machines and equipment on the worksite and forms a critical part of our Risk Assessment and Work Method, which is identified as a requirement to inspect and RECORD.

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.
