Are you aware that 15 to 20% of all tree worker fatalities are caused by electrocutions, and that all tree workers in the field have some exposure to electricity? Even a secondary wire or street lamp wire 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.
Learn to identify electrical system components, the presence and nature of electrical hazards, protective measures available, and common unsafe acts to avoid.
 
This course helps the employer comply with MIOSHA Part 53, Rule 5311: An employer shall: (a) Provide training to each new employee regarding the requirements of this standard, the job hazards and safeguards before starting his assigned job . . . and (c) Develop rescue procedures such as, but not limited to, removal of injured, stricken or electrically shocked employees from work positions aloft. Training topics will focus on practical knowledge and general awareness and will cover the requirements for all arborists including the incidental line clearance and qualified line clearance arborists as well as those who only may have phone and cable line in their work environment.
