CHAINSAW SAFETY - 1/2 DAY MODULE

Chainsaws are one of the most useful as well as dangerous tools a worker can use. This course is designed to educate personnel who use a chainsaw about safety, maintenance, use and handling. Participants will gain an understanding in what contributes to accidents and how to avoid them. Hands-on and practical work planning strategies, including bucking and limbing, understanding compression and tension and dealing with spring poles will be coached and practiced in this course. Notching and back cutting will be introduced for small tree felling (trees of approximately 10 inches in diameter at chest height – 10” dbh). There is a strong focus on personal safety, risk assessment and accident prevention. Training workers and developing skills that reduce variables and mitigate risks associated with chainsaws and cutting techniques is the general theme of this course.

Applicable Standards: This course meets the ANSI/ASSE Z490.1 Criteria for Accepted Practices in Safety, Health, and Environmental Training as well as ANSI Z133 and OSHA 1910.266.

TECHNICAL RIGGING - 1/2 DAY MODULE

Are you an experienced arborist who is familiar with basic rigging techniques and ready to learn more advanced rigging techniques? Would you like to learn how to assess, set-up, and remove large trees using blocks, pulleys, slings and multiple ropes, safely and efficiently; and have fun doing it as well?

Arborist Technical Rigging will teach you how to work as a team, using new tools and techniques under expert guidance and coaching in real-world situations. The Arborist Technical Rigging module is designed to provide skilled tree workers with education and practice in making sound designs on how to plan and set up complex rigging systems. This course is recommended for those arborists who are already experienced with basic rigging techniques.  Advanced training is provided in a hands-on teamwork format that provides participants with the skills needed to remove large trees in confined locations or surrounded by obstacles with a low impact focus. Prepare to expand your mental toolbox and learn that those challenging removals could be much easier and safer.

Applicable Standards: This course meets the ANSI/ASSE Z490 Criteria for Accepted Practices in Safety, Health, and Environmental Training as well as ANSI Z133.
