It’s back to work we must safely go.
On August 12, 2010, a 47-year-old timber harvester operator (employed by a logging company) was fatally injured when he was struck in the neck by a broken saw chain link while processing a Douglas-fir tree and the cutting chain experienced chain shot. Chain shot is the high velocity separation and ejection of a piece or pieces of cutting chain from the end of a broken chain.
While this happened in USA it is still of relevance to all harvester operators.
Scottish Woodlands - Safety Toolbox Talk
Before any Contractor or his machine operators mobilise to site they should know if there are any powerline crossing points on both the site access route and within the worksite and what maximum height limits have been set on these (this information will have been supplied by the FWM). The machine operator must also know the height of his machine in its transport mode, including the combined height if it is being transported on a low loader. If a machine operator suspects his machine height may be greater than the safe clearance on any of the crossing points he should contact the Contractor and/or the FWM and agree alternative safe access arrangements.
