Card 06.04 Pruning



  1. Cuts to various body parts (due to sharp equipment use)

  4. Bones and muscles injuries (due to uncomfortable and prolonged positions)
  5. Eyes injuries (due to branch bumps)


It is necessary to remind that:
The use of cutting equipment both motorized/fed and manual requires particular attention for the operator him/herself and the respect of a safety distance from other operators.




Operator shall always use adequate P.P.E. (gloves with strong resistance to cut and avoid loose clothing with fluttering parts) and check them periodically for any wear and tear causing lack of protection.


Operator shall always use eyes protections to avoid accidental bumps resulting in irritations or serious abrasions.


Before start working, it is advisable to check the most suitable position for the operator, according to the parts to cut, to avoid any unbalance and consequent fall. The machine shall always be stopped, while the operator is working, and check its stability and the evenness of the ground.


Maintenance shall be carried out (following the instructions manual) in order to make pruning easier.


Pictograms shall not be removed from bench equipment (pneumatic pruner, saw and chainsaw).
