Do you understand all that you need to in order to work safely around electricity and power lines?
Electrical Hazard Awareness training is a must for everyone involved in tree care. Simply put, it is a Basic Matter of Safety. If you work with trees, you will encounter electricity. Electricity can be very dangerous.
This EHAP workshop is offered by CTPA to help prepare individuals for the electrical hazards they face in their everyday jobs.
Attendees will learn about the electrical distribution system, the hardware used in that system, the types of electrical hazards a tree care worker is likely to face and how to be prepared when you are encountering electricity on the job.

About the Workshop
This workshop will make attendees aware of the hazards all tree care workers face when they work around energized electrical conductors. This awareness is an essential part of basic tree care safety. It is recommended that all people who work in tree care take an EHAP course.
The ENGLISH one day workshop, at the Berlin Campus on November 2, 2023, will be led by Emmett Shutts, Cheshire, CT. Emmett is an approved TCIA EHAP instructor and the New England regional trainer with Davey Tree. Training will also be provided on the equipment that makes up the electrical distribution system. Knowing what each piece is and what it does is an important part of being safe around electrical conductors.
