Tree Climber Specialist Workshop
Keep tree climbers motivated and trained by giving them an industry credential. This will help companies verify, according to OSHA and ANSI Z133 guidelines, that they have given safety training to all employees according to their job description.
It also helps to verify that tree care crews understand basic safety concepts required to climb trees safely and are qualified to be a tree climber for tree care companies.
Electrical Hazards Awareness Training Workshop
Due to the potential of electrical contact with overhead and underground energized power lines and equipment resulting in serious injury and fatalities, arborists/operators providing right of way maintenance need to be well informed about the dangers of working in proximity to electrical conductors/structures. The Electrical Hazard Awareness module has been prepared to teach tree care professionals how to avoid deadly encounters and decrease lost production time, downed or damaged equipment, and lawsuits and fines.
This course meets the ANSI/ASSE Z490.1 Criteria for Accepted Practices in Safety, Health, and Environmental Training as well as OSHA 1910.301-399 & 1910.269 and ANSI Z133.
