Maintenance of forestry equipment
Forestry and logging are among some of the most dangerous occupations due to the tools, heavy machinery used and the working environment they are used in which can pose many hazards for staff using them and around them.
While it is always important that staff are trained well in the use of forestry equipment such as chainsaws and axes, steps should always be made to ensure that the machinery and equipment being used is well maintained to avoid any unnecessary risks, breakdown or unsafe working conditions for all involved.
Overuse, tough weather conditions and rough terrain can all contribute to the wear and tear of forestry machinery which is why a well serviced piece of equipment will ensure that replacements are made before they become a necessity and to avoid any system downtime which can contribute to profit loss.
In line with statute and UK law, employers, the self-employed and those in control of such equipment are required to keep it well maintained and in an efficient state of good repair. The nature of repairs and maintenance can be determined through risk assessment, intensity of use, log books, manufacturer’s recommendations and knowledge and experience.
