In our position as a company of time-served tree surgeons, Surrey & Sussex Tree Surgery recognises that most work undertaken in the Guildford area carries a certain amount of risk. Because our personnel regularly use powerful chainsaws, stump grinding machinery and hedge cutting tools at ground level, or work at height to perform sectional tree felling operations, we must comply with current safety legislation at all times.
Our tree surgeons work to NPTC, LANTRA and HSE directives, and undergo further training to keep abreast with changes to industry standards. Safety is a primary concern during tree felling, stump grinding and hedge cutting operations, and with all other types of formative pruning and tree surgery work.
At Surrey & Sussex Tree Surgery, we believe that our safety record speaks for itself. To reassure our many customers and clients in the Guildford area, the section below lists a selection of the most pertinent safety regulations that tree surgeons throughout the UK adhere to on a daily basis.
These regulations help Surrey & Sussex Tree Surgery to provide a safe, positive working environment for its tree surgeons. Tree felling and stump grinding work, in particular, present a series of hazards because of machinery use. Similarly, formative pruning and hedge cutting work in Guildford requires our personnel to work at height.
It is vital that we enable all company employees to do their jobs without fear of injury or harm, and we can only do this by operating a safety-focused company that makes the welfare of its people, and of its customers and their personal property, an absolute priority.
