One of the most common accidents is kickback. Kickback occurs when the front corner of the blade contacts a solid object. This cause the chain to catch and the chainsaw to fling backwards towards your body. This can cause some serious injury and should be avoided at all costs. To prevent this, make sure you are holding the saw properly with one hand on each handle. Also make sure that you have steady footing. Make sure to keep an eye on the kickback zone of the chainsaw and take caution to never let it touch anything. This means that you should only be cutting one piece of wood at a time.
