Over the last couple of years there has been a significant shift in practical guidance on safe and compliant tree work at height. With the revision of the Industry Code of Practice (ICoP) and the publication of the new Technical Guides, along with the accompanying Safety Guides, we now have a comprehensive provision of guidance that takes us from the legislation (Work at Height Regulations 2005) to hands-on audit tools. This suite of newly published documents replaces the previous guidance and AFAG Safety Guides for aerial tree work.
This series of Safety Guides has been developed to help operators and those responsible for their supervision, e.g. the ‘Competent Person’, to identify the key safety points in relation to activities involving tree work at height.
This new interactive eLearning course gives arborists the opportunity to better understand the planning system and processes in relation to trees. Our second eLearning course is instructed by Jim Mullholland and features five in-depth modules.
