OSHA Shares Electricity and Tree Care Work pamphlet

Share this post

Contact with electricity is one of the leading causes of death for tree care workers. To help small business owners and front line supervisors, OSHA has published a pamphlet that should prepare for the risks of tree-trimming operations near sources of electricity. These include training workers about potential hazards, making sure workers maintain a distance of at least 10 feet from overhead power lines, and providing proper gloves and shoes for hazards present where tree work is being performed. Click here for the pamphlet in English, and here for Spanish.
