    What potential dangers do tree surgeons need to be aware of?


    A tree surgeon is a specialist job. They are employed to diagnose what is wrong with a tree and whether it needs to be trimmed back or chopped down completely. However, like all jobs there are certain dangers which tree surgeons need to be aware of whilst carrying out their job. The highest risks in this role are slips, trips and falls.

    Why are slips, trips and falls more common for a tree surgeon?

    Much of this job involves being up trees and some can be very tall. This means that there are always risks of sustaining a fall injury.

    As well as this, the job often involves powerful tools such as chainsaws. These can often be quite heavy and if it is a wired one can quite easily cause a trip injury for the tree surgeon or someone walking past.

    How to help prevent any of these dangers

    The most important thing to remember in order to prevent such injuries as slips, trips and falls is to always pay attention to the task at hand and never get distracted. This means that you should always be focussed on what you are doing and make sure you are aware of who and what is around you to avoid a slip, trip or fall.

    If you are more aware of your surroundings you will be able to pre-empt any potential hazards as well as people approaching thus you can prevent a fall injury and potentially other injuries sustained by passers-by.
