WELCOME TO THE SAW SAFETY NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE

Saw Safety was a weekly newsletter of safety tips created by the UGA Saw Safety Team.  This newsletter targeted professionals in tree care and landscape, men and women who put a saw in wood.  The letter offered one tip per week, is short and sweet, easy to share, and perfect for tailgate meetings.  The goal of Saw Safety is to help companies and public sector entities create a culture of safety within their organizations and to encourage safety discussions. The steady stream of safety tips is punctuated with tips on sharpening, equipment, and other great resources. Illustrative, educational, and occasionally funny videos are embedded in the newsletter, when appropriate, and with full respect to copyrights.

In 2014 tree care and logging officially became the most dangerous work in the United States with a discouraging 78 deaths per year. Accidents abound when falling trees, chainsaws, and heights are combined. Arborists are not the only workers using chainsaws. Landscapers, golf course workers, city and county workers, and many others in the public and private sectors all commonly use chainsaws.
