The UMass Transportation Center will hold a Wood Chipper Operation & Safety training at the Westminster Highway Department on May 4th from 8 am to 3 pm
Wood Chipper Safety is not a subject to be taken lightly. Serious injury and death can happen in the blink of an eye.
Have you and your employees ever had any training on what many consider to be the most dangerous piece of equipment a municipality can own? Wood chippers are often used on a daily basis and in adverse conditions.
This program will improve operator safety skills and knowledge while operating a chipper.
Chipper operator safety depends on the ability to properly maintain and operate equipment, to help avoid serious injury or death. Hands on training will be provided.
REQUIRED PPE – Safety helmet (preferably a forestry one), eye & ear protection, Boots, long pants, gloves
Registration begins at 7:30 am. Class start time 8:00 am.
Cost is $75 for municipal employees – $150 for private sector employees
