Your workers are trained. And as time goes by it’s good to re-assure yourself that they still know how to do the job properly.
Safetree’s free, industry-approved competency assessment tools can help you do this. These tools are a great way to keep your workers’ skills up-to-date – handy if they got trained a while ago. Tools are available for Head Breaker Out, Tree Felling and Breaker Out.
Your workers are trained and competent – so why not take the next step and have them go for Safetree Professional Forest Worker Certification. Certification is a great way to get official recognition from the industry that your workers’ skills are still up-to-date.
