Chainsaws are among the most useful and dangerous outdoor power tools owned and operated by landowners. Severe injuries include deep, jagged lacerations embedding foreign substances resulting from direct contact with the chain saw; strains and sprains from improper handling; and contusions concussions and/or fractures caused by being struck by objects while cutting. Improper long term use may result in loss of hearing and diminished nerve sensitivity. While all danger cannot be eliminated, training and instruction have proven to be an effective way to mitigate the risk of harm to a chain saw user.To register for this class call Cornell Cooperative Extension at 518-623-3291.
