Electrical Hazard Awareness Training - Jan. 8th

Speaker: Dr. John Ball, Ph.D., CTSP, Professor of Forestry, South Dakota State University
Tuesday, January 8, 2019  (9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) 
This training is being funded in part by a MIOSHA CET Grant
Are you aware that 20% of all fatalities related to tree care are caused by electrocution, and that all tree workers in the field have some exposure to electricity? Even a cable TV wire, street lamp circuit or phone line can generate enough electricity to be fatal. Although your company may not do line clearance tree work, all tree workers are exposed to potentially energized conductors throughout the season and must be trained to at least recognize and avoid this deadly hazard. To prevent fatal accidents, we encourage all professionals involved in the pruning or removal of trees to participate in this formal and documented training. This course helps the employer comply with MIOSHA Part 53, Rule 5311. Training topics will focus on practical knowledge and general awareness for ALL arborists, and can serve as a general background or foundation for line clearance arborists and trainees. Learn to identify electrical system components, the presence and nature of electrical hazards, protective measures available, and common unsafe acts to avoid.

Speaker: Dr. John Ball, Ph.D., Professor of Forestry, South Dakota State University, E.M.T., American Heart Association BLS Instructor
This training is being funded in part by a MIOSHA CET Grant
Every crew that leaves your shop should have at least one person certified in CPR/ First Aid.  You can never be too prepared for an accident!  Information provided in this workshop may save an employee’s life in a potentially serious work situation. This CPR class follows the American Heart Associations guidelines and falls under the title of  “Heart Saver Course”. All participants of this class will receive an “American Heart Association” Heart Saver Card valid for 2 years. Note: All professionals working in or around trees are required by OSHA & MIOSHA to receive CPR/First Aid training. Standard requirements for tree care professionals not certified in line clearance are as follows:  In the absence of a medical facility OSHA requires that there be at least 1 trained person (validated by a current certificate) per tree crew.  In the case of certified line clearance tree workers, there must be a minimum of 2 trained persons per tree crew.
