ACHMOM213 – Operate & Maintain Chainsaws

This unit of competency covers the maintenance, preparation and operation of hand-held chainsaws in a work environment. It requires the application of skills and knowledge to cross-cut fallen timber using appropriate cutting techniques to maximise volume and quality recovery. It also requires knowledge of licensing and OHS legislative requirements associated with chainsaw operation along with duty of care to self, others and the environment. The work in this standard is likely to be carried out under routine supervision with intermittent checking within enterprise guidelines.
