All aerial tree work has its dangers, full from heights can have devastating impacts on people and the industry. Over the last year the HSE has decided to toughen up is stance on how we, as climbing arborists, work at height. We all want to work safely, we all want to return home at the end of the day. If you’re employing a tree contractor, take the time to learn a little bit about them before deciding if the price is right. By asking the right questions about their insurance, health and safety policies, experience and knowledge, you may just help improve our industry that little bit more.
