ANSI Standard Z133.1 2012 - Safety Requirements - English

Member: $15.00
Non-Member: $20.00

The American National Standard for Arboricultural Operations - Safety Requirements, or ANSI Z133.1 • 2012, is developed by the Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) Z133. It is a comprehensive safety standard written by arborists for the arboriculture profession. It applies to employers and employees engaged in arboricultural operations.
Although compliance with this standard is voluntary, Z133 carries the force of law in many instances in the U.S. When OSHA cannot find language in its own standards to guide safe work practices in a particular situation, they will typically cite a section of Z133 as what the employer, “…should have known or done” to create a safe work environment for its employees.

La Norma Nacional Americana para Operaciones Arboricultural - Requisitos de seguridad o ANSI Z133.1 - 2012, es desarrollado por el Comité de Normas Acreditado (ASC) Z133. Es un estándar global de seguridad por escrito por arbolistas para la profesión de la arboricultura. Se aplica a los empleadores y los empleados que participan en operaciones de arboricultura.
Aunque el cumplimiento de esta norma es voluntaria, Z133 lleva la fuerza de la ley en muchos casos en los EE.UU. Cuando OSHA no puede encontrar un lenguaje en sus propias normas para orientar las prácticas seguras de trabajo en una situación particular, se suele citar una sección del Z133 como lo que el empleador "... debería haber sabido o hecho" para crear un ambiente de trabajo seguro para sus empleados.

Member: $55.00

Stump grinding usually falls to the least trained person on the crew. An untrained person running a heavy, expensive machine - usually alone - will quickly find there is much more to safe stump grinding operations than simply unloading it and starting it up. The Best Practices of Stump Grinding Operations in Arboriculture is the missing link between safe, productive stump grinding, and lost time/revenue due to property damage or injuries. This guidebook reveals essential information about stump grinding operations that untrained personnel would not consider: grinding operations on a slope, traveling or moving the grinder over snow or mud, the care and feeding of grinder knives to prevent injuries, preventing property damage, grinding near underground utilities, etc. Send your newly trained stump grinder operator into the field with all the tools they will need to complete the job to the customer's satisfaction as well as the bottom line.

Webinar - Effectvely Documenting Storm Wrk for Ins Adjusters

Member: $24.95
Non-Member: $44.95

For many tree care companies, storm work constitutes a material source of annual revenue. However, storm work has many inherent risks including financial risks. Tree care companies, in many instances, perform work in good faith only to find that the costs for their services are challenged after the fact by an insurance adjuster. The result can be a delay in payment or, in some cases, no payment at all, and while it is generally the home owner that has contracted for the work, it is the insurance company that pays for it. Providing sufficient detail in a proposal or invoice will significantly diminish the risk of nonpayment and generally expedites payment by insurance companies to either the property owner or directly to the tree care company that provided the services. Furthermore, good documentation will aid in any legal or collection activity should the work not be paid for. Experienced adjusters note that good documentation will "open the wallets of the insurance company". This session will set forth easy to implement good business practices for tree care companies to implement when doing Storm work.

Arborists have traditionally climbed using a system that is unique in the rope access world. The rope moves while the climber moves.

Learn about the ease and safety of SRT starting with setting a line, choosing a proper tie in point, anchoring the climbing system so that there is a built-in ground based rescue potential and choice of equipment. SRT is becoming a standard climbing system for arborists but will have some unique aspects that will separate it from other rope access techniques. Learn how to move into the future of tree climbing by using half the rope and having twice the fun!
