If proper care and safety measures are not taken, our work can be hazardous, so safety must always be the first concern!
Safety is much more than using special equipment such as wood clippers, bucket trucks and chainsaws. It starts by consistently wearing the appropriate safety gear, including eye protection, gloves, approved hard hats reflective wear, chainsaw pants, and job rated work boots, at all times. These are just the basic safety wear and materials required for an employee to be allowed to enter on to a Timberjack job site before commencing any work.
Before doing any work, a brief yet detailed discussion is had by all to ensure the team knows what is required of them and understand the scope of the task at hand! Safety is an ongoing commitment which Timberjack and our hardworking team members all practice at work to prevent accidents and protect your property. At Timberjack Tree Service, we feel safety precautions save lives! A well trained tree worker who takes heed by following all established safety standards and procedures can work safely.
First and foremost, the workers must inspect their safety climbing gear to ensure no cuts or cracks are in the materials whether it be their saddle, straps or ropes. Then the tree itself must be inspected for viable hazards. Once the hazards are identified, all workers are informed. The climber must look to see the best tie in point so that they can maneuver around the tree to perform the necessary task. Once the work has been successfully completed, a proper cleanup is done by our crew. As the nature of the business entails dropping and lowering of limbs and felling of the trunk, Timberjack is not responsible for lawn or ground damage due to this. This disclaimer is clearly visible at the bottom left of the Service Agreement. In saying that, little to no damage is usually encountered at the level of care Timberjack provides. As a result, we have made a lot of people very happy, and in turn, their trees!
If you would like a property with beautiful, well cared for trees, look no further. Call James of Timberjack Tree Service today!
