CHAINSAWS

Hurricane Charley is over but the dangers are not-and that's why it's important to remember that clean-up and recovery work under these conditions can be extremely hazardous. Chain saws are one of the most common, but dangerous portable power tools used during cleanup. Taking the time to learn how to operate the saw properly and maintain the saw in good working condition can help avoid injury. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration advises workers to take proper safety and health precautions to avoid injury.
