When it comes to safety clothing and equipment, different rules and regulations apply in different countries. But no matter where you are, this list of items will enhance your safety when working with chainsaws.
Forestry jacket/shirt. The forestry jacket should provide full upper body coverage, have high viz colouring and reflectors and it should be ventilated.
Protective trousers/chaps. Protective trousers must be fitted with saw protection that meets international standards as well as local demands. The saw protection consists of a lining with several layers of very long fibres that become entangled in the chain and can stop it in a fraction of a second. It’s important that you follow the manufacturer’s washing guidelines. If you cut into the protective layers, the trousers must be discarded.
Protective boots. The boots should be fitted with protective toecaps, saw protection and deep treaded soles (anti-slip protection) in accordance with national standards.
Work gloves. You should always wear work gloves to protect against cuts, scratches, oils and fuels. Make sure the left glove comes with saw protection, since that will stop the chain in an instant if you happen to cut into it. This is similar to the protective trousers (see point 3).
A first aid kit should be easily accessible and close at hand.
