John W. Field Tree Service, Inc. received a grant from the Arborist Safety Training Institute (ASTI) to help fund an upcoming training workshop. Join John W. Field Tree Service, Inc. for an Electrical Hazards Awareness Program (EHAP) workshop!
Since even a street lamp circuit or phone line can be energized with enough voltage to kill, almost all arborists in the field have at least some exposure to this hazard. In fact, workers don’t even have to touch a wire to be electrocuted – about half of all electrocution fatalities are the result of indirect contact. Tree branches and other conductive objects are an ever-present threat for the industry.
All arborists must be trained to recognize and avoid these electrical hazards. TCIA’s Electrical Hazards Awareness Program is designed to teach attendees how to keep workers safe, ensure OSHA compliance, and document training.
ASTI which was launched by the Tree Care Industry Association Foundation (TCIAF) in 2013, provides grants for job and safety training to minimize consequent deaths and injuries, and promote overall workforce safety that is critical for the tree care industry.
Registration cost: $35.00 includes workbooks and materials.
Please bring: bag lunch, water bottle, notebook & writing materials.
To register: email Karen@fieldtreeservice.com. Please use subject: “EHAP Registration”
Registration deadline: February 9, 2019.
To learn more about how ASTI will bring quality, local and affordable safety training to working arborists, contact TCIAF at 603-314-5380 or email@example.com.
