Forty tree care professionals were trained at TCIA's Electrical Hazards Awareness Program (EHAP), in Elkhart, IN last week. The training, which was held in the Elkhart Environmental Center, covered how to recognize and avoid electrical hazards common to tree work and line clearance jobs. Qualified line-clearance arborists must have additional knowledge about electrical hazards and the special techniques used to work safely near electrical conditions.
"Despite being somewhat crowded, the attendees were hungry for the knowledge and truly felt like they accomplished something when the workshop concluded," said Dawn Thierbach, TCIA Regional Outreach Coordinator. "All in all, it was a great day spent with tree care companies!"
