More about the Z133 Proposed Revisions and the Public Review

The American National Standard for Arboricultural Operations—Safety Requirements (commonly referred to as the Z133 standard) is a United States safety standard for use across the arboriculture industry. The current edition of the Z133 was published in 2017. Since that year, the Z133 Committee has drafted revisions to refine the standard, ensure better safety outcomes, and keep pace with developments in the industry.

To ensure that the revision process is open to all parties who are directly and materially interested in the standard, the Z133 Committee’s proposed draft is submitted to a public review and comment period. This crucial step ensures that every perspective is considered, and it often results in substantive changes and improvements to the committee’s draft.
