Industry Code of Practice: Tree Work at Height
The publication of the first edition of this document was a seminal moment in the development of the arboricultural industry, which has expanded exponentially over recent years. Through the innovation and creativity of numerous individuals working in the sector both practical techniques and management systems have evolved to support a highly skilled and professional workforce, which continues to grow.
Following recent developments and in order to meet the many challenges we face in managing tree work at height safely and efficiently, we are now at a point where we need to revise our guidance on the principles of managing tree work at height.
This industry code of practice (ICoP) provides that guidance, with planning protocols for managing resources, personnel, and equipment to ensure safe and efficient working practices. It also provides the basis for the further development of detailed technical guidance on individual tasks and equipment.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) was involved with the Arboricultural Association in producing this guidance. HSE endorses the guidance, as it follows a sensible and proportionate approach to managing health and safety.
