    Personal Protective Equipment

      European standards for chainsaw PPE are published as part of EN 381 Protective clothing for users of hand-held chainsaws. While no PPE can provide 100% protection against cuts from chainsaws, the following should be used:

    1. Safety helmet (must not be older than manufacturer's replacement instructions)
    2. Eye protection
    3. Hearing protection
    4. Leg protection (incorporating chain-clogging materials)
    5. Protective boots with good grip and protective guarding at front vamp and instep

    All PPE items should carry the CE chainsaw logo

    1. Fuel/oil mixture and chain oil - in approved container
    2. Personal first aid kit
    3. Non-snag outer clothing
    4. Operator manual for chainsaw
    5. Basic maintenance tools (ie spanner, round files, flat file, file guide, feeler gauge, bar groove cleaner etc)
    6. WATERPROOFS
    7. PACKED LUNCH

    Please note - chainsaws, PPE and equipment provided by participants must be of an acceptable standard and in good condition. Where possible, participants providing substandard or broken equipment will be issued with appropriate replacement items for which a charge will be made in addition to course fees.
