Accidents involving brush chippers and chainsaws are a significant concern for tree care workers. Keep ground workers motivated and trained by giving them an industry credential.  This will help companies verify, according to OSHA and ANSI Z133.1 guidelines, that they have given safety training to all your employees according to their job descriptions.  It also helps to verify that employees understand basic safety concepts required to work on the ground during tree care operations and are qualified to work as ground workers.
