The hazards of tree work
Anyone who has to work with trees, be they arborists, tree surgeons, or forestry workers, are in risky professions. There is the danger of falling trees, the danger of working alongside heavy mobile plant, the dangers of working with hazardous machinery like chainsaws, and the risks of slips trips and falls because of the uneven ground. There is also a danger if workers have to work at height.
The additional hazards or doing tree work at height
Doing tree work at height can be very dangerous. Chainsaws should never be used when working at height unless the operator in question has had sufficient training and is experienced, or is working with an experienced overseer.
Minimum health and safety precautions for tree work at height
Working at height, (whether it’s with trees, or in some other working environment), should always involve a minimum of two people who are present at all times. One person should always remain on the ground and that person must be competent enough and have appropriate equipment to be able to deal with any aerial rescue that could become necessary. It is also important that all operators must wear the personal protective equipment that has been issued to them.
