Chainsaw Operator Refresher Training 

Improving chainsaw safety is one of the priority goals of the UK Forest Industry Safety Accord (FISA). This initiative, led by a cross industry working group, includes a new scheme for update and refresher training for chainsaw operators. It is targeted at certificated operators who have not received any formally recorded chainsaw training for a period longer than five years.
