Working Safely Around Dogs

July, 12, 2024

1pm - 4pm Central

A lot of dogs are happy, friendly family pets. However, there are situations that can frighten or upset even the most well-trained dogs. As arborists, we can also encounter dogs that are not happy, friendly, or well-trained. After learning about a line clearance company that had 52 dog bites reported in one year, we decided that this would be a good topic to cover.

This course covers challenges for utility arborists as well as commercial arborists, communicating with clients/dog owners, understanding and reading dog behavior, reacting to dog behavior, first aid in case of a bite, and legal implications.  3 hours

Electrical Hazards

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!  5 hours
