Chainsaw Safety

Using a chainsaw brings with it the inherent danger of injury. A lack of understanding and inexperience combine to make a recipe for disaster. At AgriLearn we pride ourselves on delivering a training experience that gives each individual a real insight into the dangers of chainsaw use and the practical opportunity to learn how to minimise the risks through understanding and safe technique. Our courses are designed for the at-home user, someonenew to chainsaw use or for those using chainsaws in the workplace (other than forestry).
