Course Descriptions

Electrical Hazard Awareness Training - Keep your workers safe around power lines and other fatal utilities! Due to the potential of electrical contact with overhead and underground energized power lines and equipment resulting in serious injury and fatalities, workers in the construction environment need to be well informed about the dangers of working in proximity to energized conductors. The Electrical Hazard Awareness Training (EHAT) module has been prepared to teach construction workers how to avoid deadly encounters and decrease lost production time, downed or damaged equipment and lawsuits and fines. All training is in compliance with OSHA 1910.269, OSHA 1910.331 and ANSI Z133 standards. *** NOT JUST FOR ARBORISTS***

Ground Operation and Aerial Support - This course is designed to train tree worker support staff to understand the very important role they play in overall job site safety and accident prevention. In addition to clean up, chipping of brush and cutting of wood, they are responsible for assisting climbers or bucket operators in often very technical and serious rigging, removal and pruning operations. A strong focus on risk management, safe and ergonomic work practices is demonstrated and practiced in this course.

Aerial Lift Safety and Use - Safe operations of hydraulic Bucket Trucks and mobile man lift systems will be explained and evaluated. Positioning of aerial lift in relation to on-site hazards such as electrical power lines will also be practiced and discussed. Manufacturers’ recommendations regarding maintenance and safe working load limits will be explained and reinforced. All information is in accordance with applicable OSHA regulations and ANSI Z133 as well as ANSI A92 standards.

SRT Climbing -  Would you like to learn more about stationary rope technique (SRT) and modern tree climbing systems? Would you like to accelerate this learning through training that is fun and delivered in an exciting learning environment? The course is designed to educate participants about the technical use and application of  work at height safety equipment used in modern arboriculture. This course will also train participants in modern arboricultural climbing systems,  access and positioning techniques, gear use, knots, hitches and researched technical data as it pertains to modern SRT tree climbing systems.  Instructors will explain, and demonstrate to participants methods and procedures in access, work positioning and fall protection techniques used in modern arboriculture.Participants will observe learned skills and be mentored and coached in a safe secure environment during the course duration.

Technical Tree Falling and Cutting - It is a fact that falling trees is one of the most life threatening activities any worker can perform. This course is designed to educate anyone who uses a chainsaw about chainsaw safety, maintenance use and handling. Participants will gain an understanding in what contributes to chainsaw accidents and how to avoid them. There is a strong focus on personal safety, risk assessment and accident prevention. Training workers in developing skills that reduce variables and mitigate risks associated with chainsaws, tree felling, estimating and overcoming lean and the high-risk urban environment is a general theme of this course.

Structural Tree Support Systems Cabling and Bracing - This course is designed to introduce supplemental support systems used in tree bracing,  and cabling maintenance practices. Emphasis is placed on evaluating trees structurally and determining appropriate support systems based on tree value, condition, and legal liability implications. Tree dynamics and biology are explained and related to support systems and natural tree compensative processes. Practical time is spent on installing various types of cabling and bracing systems. All training will be in accordance to ANSI A300 standards.
