Crazy weather seems to be in the news again—hurricanes, Nor’easters, tornadoes, hail storms and even early snow fall. The tree service industry loves crazy weather, and their service model frequently requires rapid response, particularly when downed trees cause power outages, traffic delays and other issues. Following any such weather event, tree care workers descend, ready to clear debris, trim fallen trees and get us all back up and running! Rapid response still requires safety procedures and two fatal incidents this year prompted OSHA to remind the tree service industry of the consequences of not following mandated safety requirements. Released on June 16, the OSHA Hazard Bulletin addresses how to help prevent injuries and deaths from falls and falling objects during tree care work.
