Green Industry Continuing Education Series August 2013: Chainsaw Safety Green Industry Continuing Education Series August 2013: Chainsaw Safety Presentation Transcript

  • 01-1-S212-EP Unit 1 01-1-S212-EP
  • 01-2-S212-EP Unit 1 Objectives Upon completion of this lesson, the student will be able to: • Describe the elements of a Job Hazard Analysis required for chain saw operations • Define the Personal Protective Equipment required for chain saw operations. • Apply the Situational Awareness- Individual Complexity Checklist.
  • 01-3-S212-EP Job Hazard Analysis • Task or procedure to be accomplished • Identify the hazards associated with the task or procedure • Identify abatement actions to mitigate hazard • Identify first aid supplies and emergency evacuation procedures
  • 01-4-S212-EP Chain Saw Injury Location and Frequency Consumer Product Safety Commission, 1994
  • 01-5-S212-EP Personal Protective Equipment for chain saw operations • Approved hardhat • Eye protection • Appropriate gloves • Heavy-duty, cut- resistant or leather, waterproof or water- repellent, 8-inch high-laced boots with nonskid soles 01-5-S212-EP
  • 01-6-S212-EP • Hearing protection (85 decibels and higher) • Long-sleeved shirt • Chain saw chaps with a 2-inch boot overlap Personal Protective Equipment for chain saw operations 01-6-S212-EP
  • 01-7-S212-EP Personal Protective Equipment For this course and for ANY fireline assignment, ALL sawyers and swampers WILL wear the required PPE. 01-7-S212-EP
  • 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.
  • 01-9-S212-EP Chain Saw Injuries
  • 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.
  • 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?
  • 01-12-S212-EP Evaluating the Complexity of the Assignment • Physical considerations • Environmental considerations
  • 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
  • 01-14-S212-EP SAFETY Situational Awareness Exercise Watch Outs for: Limbing Bucking Falling 01-14-S212-EP
  • 01-15-S212-EP Limbing • Overhead and ground hazards • Escape routes and safety zones • Cutting area control • Limbs under tension or spring poles Prior to Limbing, examine the tree or log and immediate area for:
  • 01-16-S212-EP Area not cleared? Bar may not be visible? Tip / kickback? Limbing
  • 01-17-S212-EP Power head above shoulders? Escape Route? Tripping hazards; work area not cleared?
  • 01-18-S212-EP Tip / kickback?
  • 01-19-S212-EP Blocked escape route? Area not cleared? Limbing downhill from log? Improper spring pole technique? In path of spring pole? Overhead hazards?
  • 01-20-S212-EP Area not cleared/ escape routes? Cutting supporting limb? Overhead hazards? Power head above shoulders? Tip / kickback potential?
  • 01-21-S212-EP Bucking • Binds, tension, compression • Ground slope, roll hazard • Rocks, root wads • Overhead hazards, spring poles • People and property in cutting zone Examine the log and immediate area for:
  • 01-22-S212-EP Bucking PPE, no hardhat and gloves? Tripping hazard, area not cleared? Escape route not cleared? Bucking on downhill side of log?
  • 01-23-S212-EP Overhead hazards? Escape Route? Tension Compression analysis? Bucking on downhill side?
  • 01-24-S212-EP Bucking downhill? Blocked escape route?
  • 01-25-S212-EP Felling • Examine the immediate work area • Examine the surrounding terrain • Analyze the felling job • Assess for overhead hazards • Observe the base of the tree
  • 01-26-S212-EP Felling Escape route not cleared? Overhead hazards? Area not cleared?
  • 01-27-S212-EP Overhead & ground hazards? Area not cleared? Bar may not be visible? What is this?
  • 01-28-S212-EP Trip hazards? Blocked escape route? Unstable footing?
  • 01-29-S212-EP Power head above shoulders? Area not cleared? Overhead Hazards likely? Hearing protection?
  • 01-30-S212-EP Overhead hazards? Area not cleared? Power head may be getting higher than shoulders?
  • 01-31-S212-EP Inattention? Risk of barberchair? No undercut? People within 2 tree lengths?
  • 01-32-S212-EP Overhead hazards? Area not cleared? No clear escape route? Walk out intended lay?
  • 01-33-S212-EP No escape routes? Bar tip not visible? Area not cleared? Possible overhead hazards?
  • 01-34-S212-EP Inattention? Cutting area control. People within 2-1/2 tree lengths? Engine noise prevents effective communication? Equipment within 2-1/2 tree lengths?
  • 01-35-S212-EP People within 2 tree lengths? Inattention?Engine noise prevents effective communication? Working directly downhill from falling operation?
  • 01-36-S212-EP Neither person is watching for overhead hazards? Employee in danger zone: kickback path? Butt will most likely fly up when bole lands on log? Poor control of running saw? No wedges? Possible dutchman?
  • 01-37-S212-EP Smoking within 50 ft. of fueling area? Health hazards of cigarette smoke?
  • 01-38-S212-EP Unit 1 Objectives Upon completion of this lesson, the student will be able to: • Describe the elements of a Job Hazard Analysis required for chain saw operations • Define the Personal Protective Equipment required for chain saw operations. • Apply the safety components of the Situational Awareness-Individual Complexity Checklist.
