Tree Surgery in Oxshott | The Importance of Safety in Tree Work

 

By its very nature, any kind of tree surgery, hedge cutting or stump removal carries inherent dangers to both tree surgeons and the general public if it not carried out in compliance with HSE guidelines. As responsible tree surgery specialists operating in the Oxshott area, Midgard Tree Services prioritise safety at every turn, ensuring that our tree work projects reach completion without accident or incident.

 

Before we allow any tree surgeon to represent us in the Oxshott area, we give them thorough training and refresh their Health & Safety knowledge. We firmly believe that tree work undertaken in full compliance with safety guidelines ultimately produces the best results.

 

These rules are in place for a reason – to provide a safe platform for tree surgeons to produce their best possible tree work, stump removal or hedge cutting.

 

For the ultimate peace of mind for our customers in the Oxshott area, we have listed below the range of Health & Safety legislation, training and accreditation a tree surgeon requires before they can carry our range of services.

 

  • As employers, we are bound by the ‘Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999’ to conduct risk assessments of our workplace, including every site in Oxshott where tree surgery, hedge cutting or stump removal occurs
  • We ensure that all Midgard Tree Services employees receive training and guidance in relation to the ‘Work at Height Regulations 2005’ to guarantee the safety of our ladders, climbing harnesses and other equipment used for tree work at height
  • Our tree surgeons regularly use chainsaws in their tree work around the Oxshott area. To minimise the well-known dangers of this tool, we train tree surgeons in correspondence with the ‘Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998’.
  • Employees using lifting equipment such as hydraulic lifts receive training in line with the ‘Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998’. This further enhances the safety of tree surgeons working at height
  • Every tree surgeon onsite in Oxshott wears protective clothing such as hearing protectors, eye protection, safety helmets, gloves and boots in line with the ‘Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992’.
  • With potentially harmful substances such as sawdust and petrol fumes common in our tree work, stump removal and hedge cutting, our tree surgeons are trained in compliance with the ‘Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002’.

 

Here at Midgard Tree Services, we take pride in our safety record. By following these regulations, and continually updating our own training methods in line with HSE requirements, we can continue to offer Oxshott customers a safe environment for tree surgery.
