Arborist Emergency Preparedness and Rescue
A unique arborist seminar offering.
This seminar is designed to educate ground workers, tree climbers and/or aerial lift operators in the most likely scenarios where they may have to respond to an emergency while working at height. The discussion focuses on the importance of Emergency Action Planning (EAP) and emergency preparedness protocols in a high angle environment. The importance of self-rescue strategies and methods to minimize risk exposure to co-workers is discussed and demonstrated. Systems designed to facilitate an efficient and practical rescue are described and demonstrated.
Recommendations: All climbers, lift operators, crew leaders, and ground support crew should attend. Learners are given the opportunity to see a rescue demonstration, done “low and slow”. Aerial rescue will always be a team exercise, so professional arborists who routinely work from the ground are encouraged to attend as well.
