The use of timber in underground mining cannot be downplayed. This is because timber plays a crucial role in protecting the lives of workers as well as preventing severe disasters that could mean financial woes for mining companies.
Timbers are used by mining companies as pillars in underground mines to prevent slides and breakages that cause workers to either be entrapped underground or severely injured or die.
To get timbers to be cut into the desired sizes in underground mines and to be easily moved as well, chainsaw is a high requirement.
