Professional Tree Care Services Means Putting Safety First

The tree care industry has one of the highest annual rates of accidents per hour worked according to OSHA. Our job can create multiple exposures to employee injury or property damage on a daily basis.

At Wachtel Tree Science, we continually invest in the safety of our employees and our clients. We hold weekly safety meetings covering a review of near hits and accidents along with a training topic related to our work. Our safety program is guided by a Safety Coordinator and Safety Committee made up of employees. Several of our employees are Certified Tree Care Safety Professionals – an industry sponsored program. Employees are trained and certified in First Aid and CPR. Each vehicle contains specialized safety equipment which includes first aid kits, fire extinguishers, along with many other safety related investments.

We are dedicated to focusing on developing this strong culture; a culture that we feel is positively driven towards safe work practices and procedures. Our dedication to safety and education not only protects our employees, but ensures that our services are as safe as can be for our clients and their property.
