Hi all, I currently work 5 days a week for a company as an arb surveyor/consultant. I am looking to earn some extra cash by carrying out some local surveys and providing reports on weekends for mostly risk assessments and tree management reports. I may end up doing some small BS5837 and subsidence reports but will mostly do these through work due to the complexity and other reasons. Are there any liability/insurance etc. issues I need to sort before I can get started? I am fully qualified with several years experience. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
Tree safety management is a matter of limiting the risk of harm from tree failure while maintaining the benefits conferred by trees. The Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA) system moves the management of tree safety away from labelling trees as either ‘safe’ or ‘unsafe’ and thereby away from requiring definitive judgements from either tree assessors or tree managers. Instead, QTRA quantifies the risk of significant harm from tree failure in a way that enables tree managers to balance safety with tree values and operate to predetermined limits of tolerable or acceptable risk. We have received some excellent feedback from workshops carried out throughout the UK as well as Australia and New Zealand over the course of the year. Visit Training to use QTRA for booking and further information on QTRA and Visual Tree Assessment workshops.
