AAA was contacted by HIOSH (Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health) in November about putting on a tree care safety workshop together because of the increase in the number of deaths in the industry (3 in 2011, 5 in 2010-2011). The workshop will take place on Friday March 16th and will be held on the University of Hawaii Maui Campus. Kevin Eckert of Arbor Global will be the primary speaker along with 1-2 representatives from HIOSH. 6 CEUs will be available for the all day workshop. HIOSH strongly encourages tree care contractors and landscapers to attend the workshop and mail it to the applicable companies.
At the workshop, participants will be provided with
1. Food (generally breakfast pastries and lunch)
2. Drinks (Coffee, bottled water)
3. One copy of the ANSI Z133.1 (2006) – tree care safety standard
