  8. 8. 01-8-S212-EP How Chain Saw Chaps Protect the User When a saw chain strikes the chaps, Kevlar fibers are pulled into the chain saw’s drive sprocket, slowing and quickly stopping the chain.
  9. 9. 01-9-S212-EP Chain Saw Injuries
  10. 10. 01-10-S212-EP Inspection and Replacement Replace chain saw chaps when: • The outer shell has numerous holes and cuts. • Wood chips and saw dust are evident in the bottom of the chaps. • Repairs have stitched through the protective pad. • Cleaning has been improper. • High-pressure washing has destroyed the protective pad. • The chaps have a cut more than 1 inch long in the first layer of yellow Kevlar.
  11. 11. 01-11-S212-EP Situational Awareness Checklist of Personal Safety Considerations and Attitude: • Am I exercising sound judgment and awareness? • Is my attitude influencing me to go against my better judgment (gut feeling)? • Do I have all of the required PPE and sawing equipment to do the job safely? • Am I in an unfamiliar environment and timber type? • Do I watch out for my coworkers and the public?
  12. 12. 01-12-S212-EP Evaluating the Complexity of the Assignment • Physical considerations • Environmental considerations
  13. 13. 01-13-S212-EP Escape Routes/Safety Zones • Before cutting, always: • Identify and mitigate overhead and ground hazards • Establish escape routes and safe zones • Establish cutting area control
