Chainsaw Safety Training
Northern Star Scouting is offering Chainsaw Safety Training on a couple dates at two different locations. Chainsaw training is required if you are planning to operate a chainsaw on Northern Star Council camp properties. Events such as Conclaves and Alumni work weekends benefit from trained volunteers. Cutting is always done at the discretion of the Camp Ranger and/or council staff.
OSHA Required Equipment: Helmet with screen face shield, Ear protection, Chainsaw chaps and Chainsaw boots.
You will need to have your own chain saw, fuel, bar oil and safety gear.
