MUCC Chainsaw Safety Training 2017

*This course is currently full; please contact stopp@mucc.org if you'd like to added to a wait list and be notified of an opening.

On Saturday, January 7th, MUCC will be hosting Chuck Oslund to teach a Chainsaw Safety Course at our office in Lansing, MI. This course is free and will cover topics on why each saw operator must have a safety system, the elements of a good safety system, mental aspects of safety, safer chainsaw handling techniques, and the state-of-the-art safest way to fall a large diameter tree.

This year, we will also be offering a hands-on training on Sunday, January 8th. This will include tree-felling demonstrations by experienced sawyers and the option to practice bucking techniques as well as felling cuts on stumps only. This portion will be hosted at a location in the Rose Lake State Game Area- time TBA, more details to come.

A majority of our on the ground wildlife habitat projects involve sawyer techniques and it is highly recommended that our volunteers  utilize this safety training to keep up with our safety system. The seminar provides a great amount of detailed techniques and is updated each year. Lunch will be provided by MUCC for the lecture-training portion.

    Because who doesn't want to learn how to operate a chainsaw? (I can't even get a leafblower to start...)
