Electricity is a serious and widespread hazard to arborists. In fact, electricity causes about 15 percent of all fatalities in the tree care industry, making it the leading cause of worker fatalities. TCIA’s Electrical Hazards Awareness Program (EHAP) is a great way to keep workers safe, ensure OSHA compliance (OSHA 1910.269 safety standard), and document training. EHAP will also augment your work in three other areas:

Employer-certified training
Employers must certify that employees who work 10 feet or closer to energized conductors are trained in the special hazards involved in such work.

On-the-job training and verification
Employers must verify through documented, on-the-job training and verification that these employees have the skills necessary to perform line-clearance job tasks safely.

ANSI Safety Requirements
The ANSI Z133.1 safety standard for arboricultural operations requires all employees be trained to recognize electrical hazards. EHAP training meets the ANSI Z133.1 training requirement.

Storm Cleanup
EHAP is often required by the US Army Corps of Engineers in order to qualify for storm-related clean-ups. They have recognized the importance of the EHAP training program dating back to Hurricane Katrina. 

7.0 ISA and TCIA CTSP credits available.

Workshop funded in part by the Arborist Safety Training Institute (ASTI).
