Electricity is a serious and widespread hazard to arborists.  In fact, electricity causes about 30 percent of all fatalities in the tree care industry, making it the leading cause of worker fatalities.  Workers don’t even have to touch a wire to be electrocuted – about half of all electrocution fatalities are the result of indirect contact.  Tree branches and other conductive objects are an ever-present threat to arborists.

Since even a street lamp circuit or phone line can be energized with enough voltage to kill, most arborists in the field have at least some exposure to this hazard.  The ANSI Z133.1 safety standard for arboriculture operations requires all arborists to be trained to recognize and avoid these electrical hazards. Qualified line-clearance arborists must have additional knowledge about electrical hazards and the special techniques used to work safely near electrical conductors.
 
This EHAP course is a great way to keep workers safe, ensure OSHA and ANSI compliance, and document training.  EHAP will also enhance your work in three other areas:

•OSHA Safety Requirements:  EHAP helps you meet the OSHA 1910.269 safety standard.

•ANSI Safety Requirements:  EHAP meets the ANSI Z133.1 requirement for electrical hazard training.

•Storm Cleanup:  EHAP is often required by the US Army Corps of Engineers in order to qualify for storm-related clean-ups.
