    It doesn't look like they are CSA approved.

    EN standards are higher then CSA not concerned about that.

    Do you think MOL cares about that?

    We've found in Quebec they have no problem with the European standards for the Pfanner Zermatt's. In QC chainsaw resistant footwear is required, not in Ontario...

    I can't remember how it works there anymore, but out here WorkSafe (NB equivalent of MOL) can fine you for working on your own property without PPE because it's considered a worksite. I doubt it happens often, but it's within their rights. We also require chainsaw protective footwear here, but has to be CSA cut resistant approved which there are only 3 boots that I know of. I wish we could use EU standards, but you know how it is....bureaucracy and money trump common sense.

    I know what your saying Matt, there is only one MOL inspector in our area and he sees us and waves he knows we are compliant with everything I'm not concerned. He's looking for the hacks with no helmets running shoes and jogging pants and last nights crushed empties in the back of there rusted out pickups.

    That sounds like 90% of the "tree companies" out here.

    Yes it does! Why do some people who are self employed think rules and regulations don't apply to them?! I know you are just asking a question here so I am not saying that is what you are saying but I did have this conversation with another self employed person who thought nothing applied to him!
