1.  Risk Assessments on the use of Chainsaws

Using chainsaws is one of the most risky activities we undertake. If you are using a chainsaw on property owned or managed by the Trust please download the relevant Risk Assessment from this page.

You should complete the risk assessment and return it to info@lhcrt.org.uk prior to undertaking the work.

In addition to the risk assessment for the chainsaws you should consider the specific risks of the location you are working at. These will soon be available on this site.

Finally the weather conditions on the day of the work may also impact on how you work or even whether you undertake the work on the day.

The documents here are not just a checklist. They also include useful information about the tasks you are planning to undertake. Please read it carefully before you complete the document and return it to us.
