Chainsaws are dangerous. Every year in Australia many people are killed or seriously injured. Chainsaws have also become significantly cheaper over the years meaning more and more people have access to them. But often people will neglect to do chainsaw training because it is too expensive. Employers also have an obligation under the Work Health and Safety Act to ensure that they provide training in any task that they might need to do in the course of their employment. Chainsaw training is great way to understand the best way to safely use a chainsaw.
