Accident Briefs

Each month, TCIA runs a summary of "Accident Briefs," which are taken from published reports or are reported directly to TCIA staff. Most incidents will have enough information and photos or videos to facilitate safety discussions with employees. Some may only be a notification of fatality with limited details, but will help to remind employees of how critical safety is in the tree care industry, and that accidents can happen to anyone - even seasoned employees.

TCIA kindly asks that you take time to review the incidents below and consider using it as a basis for, or incorporation into, a tailgate safety meeting. If you are not sure how to use this information for safety training or want to learn about TCIA's safety training programs, call us directly at 1-800-733-2622.
