Electrical Hazards Awareness for Arborists

Electricity is a serious and widespread hazard to arborists. Even if you're not working around distribution lines, a simple phone line can be energized with enough voltage to kill. This informative class will keep you in compliance with ANSI to train each employee on electrical hazards and, most importantly, help keep you and your employees safe!
This workshop covers key disciplines a tree care company needs as a foundation to become extraordinary. The workshop consists of two three-week sessions. The Spring session is in May, and the Fall session is in November. You can take either or both. Each webinar lasts two hours (from Noon until 2:00pm Central time) and consists of a half-hour presentation and 1.5 hours of roundtable discussion facilitated by Eric Petersen and one or more of our Thrive consultants. Prior to each session, a homework assignment will be sent out in advance to help prepare all attendees and maximize the roundtable discussion time.
This webinar is designed to educate attendees in safe practices for chainsaw use. Taught by Jeff Thierbach, BCMA, Utility Specialist, RCA, and CTSP, this course covers: procedures for operation and maintenance, hazard awareness, correct PPE, and more.
