OF OUR WORK
& HEDGE CUTTING
As a foremost tree surgery, hedge cutting and stump removal specialist based in Cobham, we take safety on our tree work sites across Esher, Guildford, Oxshott, Walton on Thames, Weybridge and the surrounding Surrey areas seriously. Even when carried out by a fully trained and experienced tree surgeon, tree surgery still carries inherent dangers. From chainsaw accidents to falls from height, in the last decade there have been 24 deaths and 1,400 injuries suffered on active tree surgery, hedge cutting or stump removal sites.
Like any responsible tree surgeon, Midgard Tree Services views safety as something of paramount importance. While producing outstanding results in our tree work, hedge cutting and stump removal remains vital to us, the safety of our tree surgeons and the general public in Cobham, Esher, Guildford and across Surrey will always be our priority.
This is why, as a tree surgery specialist serving Oxshott, Walton on Thames, Weybridge and the neighbouring Surrey area, we ensure that our tree surgeons receive extensive training in every regard.
Before a tree surgeon can even reach the stage where we train them, they must have certain accreditation. We’re proud of the fact that every tree surgeon at Midgard Tree Services is City & Guilds accredited to NPTC standards.
This ensures any individual tree surgeon working on properties across Cobham, Esher, Guildford, Oxshott, Walton on Thames, Weybridge or the wider Surrey area has been assessed by a nationally-recognised scheme for proficiency in their trade.
To carry out tree surgery, hedge cutting or stump removal for Midgard Tree Services, however, we ensure that our tree surgeons undergo training in compliance with the following HSE legislation:
Further enhancing our positon as a responsible tree surgery specialist, we fully comply with the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which requires us to conduct risk assessments of our workplace.
As our workplaces consist of properties in our home town of Cobham and across Esher, Guildford, Oxshott, Walton on Thames, Weybridge and throughout Surrey, we undertake risk assessments for all of our tree surgery, hedge cutting or stump removal jobs.
Make no mistake, Midgard Tree Services values safety as highly as we do outstanding workmanship.
Fortunately for our customers, we excel at both.
