Title:ASTI Chipper Operator Safety
Description:Accidents involving brush chippers are a significant concern for tree care and landscape employers and tree care workers who operate the equipment. Strong anecdotal information from the field tells us that chipper operators receive little or no formal training on chipper operation and field maintenance.
The Arborist Safety Training Institute and the Tree Care Industry Association has implemented a Chipper Operator Specialist course designed to train tree care crews in hazards, as well as accepted practices for brush chipper operation and other associated tasks. This course, which is designed for crew members who often do not receive formal training opportunities, will increase involvement with self-policing.
