OSHA Chipper Machine Safety Fact Sheet


Chipper Machine Safety

Chipper machines cut tree limbs into small chips. Hazards arise when operators get too close to, or make contact with, the chipper. Contact with chipper operating components (blades, discs or knives) may result in amputation or death. Operators may also be injured by material thrown from the machine. To minimize these hazards, use appropriate engineering and work practice controls, including operator training.
