SITE CLEARING RULES
Check for underground utilities such as telephone cables, sewers, gas, electrical and pipe lines. Irritating and toxic plants can be dangerous. Check the area first so that you know what you are getting into. Insects, snakes, rodents and other animals are another threat; be alert!
Heavy equipment used in site clearing must meet specific requirements—rollover bars, overhead guards and rear canopy guards are just a few.
Use caution with tree removal — be alert for overhead utilities — make sure that you have enough lay down room to fell the tree.
When using cable to pull trees out, do not overload and stand clear. If a cable snaps, the whip action can be fatal.
Chain saws cut fast. Use extra caution with this tool — make sure that you have good footing—don't walk with the saw while the chain is in motion.
Chain saws are noisy. Look before you turn to avoid cutting someone who may have walked up behind you.
When using a chain saw, be careful — avoid binds and kick backs — always handle the saw with respect.
SHARP TOOLS CUT CLEAN —DULL TOOLS CAUSE ACCIDENTS
