Course Description

Wood Chipper Safety is not a subject to be taken lightly. Serious injury and death can happen in the blink of an eye. Have you and your employees ever had any training on what many consider to be the most dangerous piece of equipment a municipality can own? Wood chippers are often used on a daily basis and in adverse conditions. Wouldn't it make sense to make sure you and your crew are properly trained?

Target Audience

Anyone who uses a Chipper in their daily/occasional work to maintain property, do storm damage cleanup, right-of-way clearing, etc. can benefit from this workshop.
