Chainsaw Safety Training

Chainsaws are widely used throughout the world. They’re used in wide variety of industries such as commercial, residential, arborist, road maintenance, property maintenance, ground operations, and bucket truck operations. Chainsaws can be very useful, but it important to remember they can also be very dangerous. Every year, numerous chainsaw operators and bystanders are seriously injured and killed due to chainsaw accidents. A large majority of these statistics could have been prevented by learning and practicing proper chainsaw safety. During this presentation, we will discuss chainsaw maintenance procedures, how to select and properly use personal protective equipment, and how to safely operate the chainsaw to reduce the risk of injury.

Developing and Updating ADA Transition Plans

Course Description: This webinar will discuss best practices for developing and updating ADA Transition Plans.

ADA Transition Plans: A Requirement for All Public Entities

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 prohibits discrimination against people who have disabilities. Title II of the Act addresses how to make public services and public transportation accessible to people with disabilities. Under the ADA, designing and constructing facilities for public use which are inaccessible to people with disabilities constitutes discrimination.

The Act covers all facilities built before and after 1990. To develop ADA-compliant accessibility plans, state and local governments, public entities, and agencies must self-evaluate their facilities. These evaluations are used to determine if facilities meet ADA accessibility requirements. Agencies are then required to develop a Transition Plan to address deficiencies. A Transition Plan should:

(1) identify physical obstacles that limit individuals with disabilities access to facilities,

(2) describe methods for making facilities accessible,

(3) provide a schedule for modifying access to facilities, and

(4) identify public officials responsible for implementing the Transition Plan.
