Chainsaw Safety Training
NYCAMH partners with Bill Lindloff's ProCuts to offer Game of Logging training to farmers across New York. We subsidize the cost of the class through a generous grant from the New York State Department of Health. Game of Logging is widely recognized as a leader in logging safety. The program combines lecture with a hands-on component, so students can put their newly learned skills to the test.
"Tailgate" workshops are also available through NYCAMH, covering safe chainsaw use which covers equipment, operation and storage. This session is intended to be an introduction and is not adequate preparation for felling standing trees. Participants will not be using a chainsaw as part of the workshop; however, they might see a ham get mangled.
Contact NYCAMH directly at (800) 343-7527 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about Game of Logging and tailgate workshops. Looking for safety courses for professional loggers? Visit the Empire State Forest Products Association at www.newyorkloggertraining.org.
