How 2 Safety Tips – Road Towable Wood Chipper, Hydraulic Log Splitter, Heavy Duty Petrol Chipper

When using our machines you must always take care so as to not place yourself or anybody else in danger whilst the machine is in use. Wood Chippers are fitted with extremely sharp teeth and are in the same realm as chainsaws. The hydraulic log splitter is just as dangerous due to the immense amount of pressure (8 metric tonnes) which can be placed upon the material which is to be split.

To help prevent accidents in the work place we have devised some basic safety tips you can implement to provide as safe a working environment as possible.

Diesel Road Towable and Petrol Heavy Duty Chippers

Chippers will feed material into the chipping chamber on their own. To do this the chipper relies on very sharp blades known as ‘teeth’ located on the feeder rollers and the chippers rotor. We advise you make sure of 2 main aspects when feeding material into the chipper:

  1. Never work alone! Most accidents involving chippers occur whilst workers are on their own with nobody around to help in a crisis.
  2. Look at what you're doing. Again accidents are caused when workers are feeding material into the chipper but looking at either another load arriving or some other part of the machine.

In 2015 a 33 year old worker was killed whilst working alone on a two acre job site. The worker was loading tree trunks into a chipper whilst his co-workers brought fresh loads to the machine. Upon hearing some unusual noises the site supervisor inspected the machine only to find the workers remains beside the chipper.

Having been working alone nobody was present to witness the accident and so it is theorised he either lost balance whilst feeding material into the chipper or his gloves became caught by the feed rollers.

When using our wood chipper machines never feed them with muddy or dirty wood, stones, brick work, metal and even roots as this could potentially damage the rotor and blunt the teeth.

Additional Safety Tips

  • Never reach into a chipper whilst it is operating or on wind down.
  • Never wear loose fitting clothing or anything that could potentially snag against the machine.
  • Always wear the correct amount of PPE (here at Hire Station we recommend protective clothing, hard hat head protection, safety gloves, safety boots, ear defenders and eye protection (in the form of goggles or full face masks).
  • Never work alone! You should always make sure new workers are fully trained and supervised at all times whilst onsite.
  • When servicing or conducting maintenance of the chipper (i.e. unjamming), use a ‘lockout’ system to dis-engage the equipment.
  • Always be aware of your surrounds, make sure nobody who isn’t necessary to the operation of the machine is near it. We recommend a ‘Working Zone’ of 3m (9.8feet).
  • Mind your material. During the shredding process the material, whether it is locks, branches etc. may jerk about in the chamber as the machines turns them to mulch. Be careful not to get hit or whipped by agitated foliage.
