Safety gloves essential for chainsaw usersPosted on 16/12/2010
Anyone thinking of cutting down a Christmas tree this festive period should ensure they are wearing the right equipment when doing so, one source has warned.
An article on Afrik-News stated that chainsaw users should always take the proper precautions when operating the machinery, which includes goggles to protect their eyes and appropriate safety gloves for their fingers and palms.
'In the case of chainsaws, most injuries caused are associated with the chain breaking or pieces of wood flying around. It is essential to wear safety clothing, gloves, an anti-noise helmet and goggles.
It is also important that, when purchasing chainsaws, consumers should remember to ask for a demonstration, as this can prevent any injuries in the future.
Recently, a post on Lon's Article Directory noted that companies which take steps to ensure that employees are provided with the necessary personal protective equipment are far less likely to encounter problems if staff go on to suffer an injury which could have been prevented.
