Following the Z: Rules to Live By

Following the Z: Rules to Live By
Z133, American National Standards for Arboriculture Operations – Safety Requirement is the guide that arborists can and should use to navigate their hazardous work environment. Unfortunately, due to the continual expansion of the Z – now in excess of 75 pages – it is rarely read and sometimes ignored. Dr. John Ball will cover the most common incidents that occur to arborists - in particular climbers – and identify the ten paragraphs that, if observed, could reduce the tree care profession’s fatal and nonfatal injuries by more than 70%.
