Treesmiths Know Safety
Safety Starts At The Top.
The company's top safety officer is also an owner. He chairs our Safety Committee, which is certified by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry. It meets monthly to review safety performance and plan new safety initiatives and to enforce OSHA, ANSI and Treesmiths standards in all company operations.
Every new employee, no matter what their level of experience, is trained to the Treesmiths standard of safety before they go on the job. And throughout their career with Treesmiths, they will start each day with a Safety Briefing, conducted by their crew foreman, where the day's job conditions including voltages, terrain, and necessary safety precautions are reviewed.
Every week, all employees participate in a Toolbox Meeting. These sessions focus on professional skills with an emphasis on safety.
