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.

Best Practices for Stump Grinder Operations in Arboriculture

Member: $55.00
Non-Member: $85.00

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.
