Better safe than sorry
Your protective equipment
For maximum safety while working you need to wear specified clothing and protective equipment when operating a chain saw. Clothing must be sturdy and snug-fitting, but allow complete freedom of movement. Never wear anything that could catch in wood or scrub. Do not wear a scarf, tie or jewellery when operating the machine. Long hair must be securely tied back.
Face mask, face protection
Heavy-duty, nonslip gloves – preferably made of leather.
Close-fitting clothing with cut-retardant inlay.
With cut-retardant inlay, nonslip sole and steel toecap.
It's also essential to follow the precautions in your chain saw Instruction Manual.
Protective clothing is not enough on its own!
No protective clothing can provide total protection. Protective clothing is no substitute for safe working practices. That's why it is important to observe the safety precautions in your power tool Instruction Manual.
