At Evergreen Tree Care, our Level 5 Arborists understand the importance of Safety when it comes to working in and around our Brisbane Urban forests.

Daily Safety Practices keep not only our working teams safe, but everyone who enjoys public and private spaces where our growing greenery thrives.

The reality of the job is that our tree surgeons encounter heights

Level 5 Arborists BrisbaneThe reality of the job is that our tree surgeons encounter heights, slippery conditions, very sharp equipment, falling limbs and electrical hazards. This is why it is so important to practice preventative measures to reduce workplace injury.

For our ground crew, or even our tree climbers going out on a limb – we use safety equipment of the very best quality to get any job, big or small, done with professional ease and precision.

Some Super Hot Tips from the Team:

  1. Always Wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  2. identify Hazards Before Starting Any Job
  3. Stay Clear of Powerlines
  4. Stand Clear of the Drop Zone
  5. Keep Your Saws and Equipment Maintained
  6. Be Able to recognise the Signs of Heat-Related Illness
  7. Regular Training and Upskilling in Climbing Techniques, Fall Protection and First Aid.

Hard hats, safety glasses, gloves, and steel-toed boots are PPE items that are essential for most jobs. You may also see rope clamps, descenders, harnesses, lanyards, webbing, slings, ropes, energy absorbers, carabiners, pulleys, swivels and rigging plates in use.

Performing routine maintenance on your safety equipment will not only save you from hefty repair costs but could end up saving the lives of your fellow tree climbers and those who walk below.

So Remember the 3 Ps of Safety from the team at Evergreen – Prepare,  Practice and Prevail.
