Chainsaw Safety

Safety Services New Brunswick offers two options for the Chainsaw Safety Course – a 1-day Refresher course for those who operate a chainsaw and have had previous experience using a chainsaw, and a 2-day safety course for those with little or no experience.  Participants will learn about proper chainsaw safety use and maintenance through a classroom component followed by a practical session.  Participants are to provide their own chainsaw, proper PPE, and maintenance tools.   

Defensive Driving

The Canada Safety Council’s Defensive Driving Course has been designed to help participants become a better and safer driver through a 1-day in-class session.  In this course, participants will have the opportunity to learn what is involved in driving defensively, why and how various types of motor vehicle collisions occur, and what it takes to prevent them.
