Safety training session planned for Surrey arborists

October 14, 2017 by  

Arborists and those who work in the plant care industry who wish to enhance their knowledge of how to work safely with and around electricity may wish to save he date for a day of training that will soon be held in Surrey.

The Surrey Nature Centre will serve as the venue for the daylong workshop, which will cover an assortment of areas that will help the attendees be safe when working anywhere that carries a risk of coming into contact with high voltages.

There will be a review of the current industry standards including O.S.H.A. policies, grounding and electrical theory, voltage identification, electrical accidents and grounding. There will also be a review of both CPR and first aid so that the participants will know what to do should an accident occur, and safe work practices will be discussed and demonstrated.

The course will be facilitated by Phillip Kelley, who is both an instructor and lead climber with many years of experience in the field. The event has been organized by Pacific Northwest ISA. A printer can use binding to craft manuals and other materials for an educational event such as this.

The Electrical Hazard Awareness Training session will be held on December 7, and the registration fee starts at $90 each. More information can be obtained by contacting the organizer through its website.
