Arborist: Safety Meeting Topics Mobile App
The Arborist Safety Guide mobile app was designed for arborists and tree care specialists to ensure occupational safety.
How does it work?
This app provides a simple list of safety meeting topics. Frequent safety meetings are very useful. A short weekly meeting is recommended to keep safety topics in the minds of staff. However, a more lengthy and detailed meeting will be necessary for some areas, including the use of an on-the-job training program for anyone new to the field. Such topics covered are:
• use of personal protective equipment
• use of equipment such as the top handle chainsaw
• tree pruning near power lines
• emergency response plans
• tree climbing safety
• bloodborne pathogens that can be found during tree care
The app is available for an iPhone, iPad, Android device, and the Windows desktop. Since the information collected in the meetings is always available on the GoCanvas Cloud and can be printed as a PDF, it can be used as an arborist certification study guide.
