RESTON, Va.

The training program is made up of five components: a PowerPoint presentation to train employees; a safety tip sheet; a test for employees to take to demonstrate their understanding of the PowerPoint presentation; an answer sheet; and an evaluation of the trainer demonstration of the saw.
