Spring time in the UK is often the time when those who don’t have green fingers look out of their windows and notice that their gardens are beginning to look rather overgrown. It always seems to come on suddenly after a long, cold winter, and it always prompts a number of calls to gardeners to come and make it all look neat and tidy again. And this is when injury solicitors in Banham and elsewhere start to be called upon for garden incident claims. But if you have an injury when gardening, it is best to call Accident Advice Helpline instead of a local firm – we can cover all of the UK, and with just one phone call your claim can be underway.
Tree surgeon accidents
Of all the gardening jobs, that of a tree surgeon is the most hazardous. It requires a lot of specialist training, much experience and the right safety equipment – even so, things can still go wrong. Statistics show that, on average, three tree surgeons die every year from work-related injuries.
Working at heights
Working at heights always presents challenges and potential dangers, and for tree surgeons it is an everyday occurrence. Since no two trees are the same, this makes the job of a tree surgeon all the more difficult since it is completely unpredictable. Therefore, planning before a job is essential. It is also important to have the right level of training regarding the harness that must be used at all times.
Dangerous cutting equipment
Dangerous cutting equipment includes items such as chainsaws and the risk of injury from these is high. The right PPE (personal protective equipment) should be worn but again, it is mostly down to individuals receiving the correct training on how to use such equipment in a safe manner that ensures accidents are avoided.
When working on a tree, tree surgeons are at risk of falling branches from both above and below. A branch that falls from above them could cause a serious head injury, or it could knock them off the tree.
