Get a Chainsaw Ticket to Prove You Can Work Safely and Effectively

Working in the construction industry is a rewarding and profitable career choice, but it inevitably demands a great deal of attention to detail when it comes to ensuring that you are working in a safe and effective manner. In Australia, all people employed to work on construction sites must possess certification to demonstrate that they can perform their jobs without causing unnecessary risk to themselves and others – and one such piece of certification is the chainsaw ticket.If your line of work involves the need to use a chainsaw, you must complete a chainsaw ticket course that will provide you with all the information and skills you need to safely make use of this vital piece of construction equipment.

There are a great variety of courses available, but not all of them are fully approved by the Registered Training Organisation (RTO). Only with an RTO-approved course can you acquire an official chainsaw operator ticket which will allow you to legally operate chainsaws on construction sites here in Victoria and elsewhere across Australia.
