  2. As you all know we love bringing new products into the Forestry and Arboriculture worlds. Today is no different as we now have available to preorder the SPOT Gen3 GPS tracking device! Some of you may have already seen our latest 'Off The Shelf' article about it in this month's Essential Arb magazine. This innovative new device is a fantastic piece of kit, not just for work but for your adventures out and about too. Featuring highly advanced GPS tracking that is available across the world even in some of the most remote locations, you can be tracked or contact friends and family even when out of mobile phone signal. In our industry you could keep track of your teams on site, or set location updates at intervals throughout the day so that you don't even need to keep looking, the notification comes straight go you! You could also use it during site walks and look back at your route online later on. Also featuring an SOS service so that if the worst happens, one press of a button sends emergency services to your exact global location as quickly as possible! Click the link below for more info, the demo video and look at the coverage map, and of course place your pre orders! Stock is expected in soon! SPOT Gen3 GPS Device (As ever, we'd love to hear your feedback on these new products!)
  3. I have just had cause to look through the generic risk assessments for a commercial arb company, as a part of another job I was doing. These were revised in December 2014, but I found that all the references to AFAG guides and qualifications were out of date. The CS units referred to having ceased to be current in 2012, and more than half the AFAG guides now having gone over to FISA. I suspect that the revision in this case was just a change of date at the bottom of each page. It did make me wonder how much more of the content was out of date and many more risk assessments there are out there which, having had the same 'lick and promise' approach to updating, could come back and haunt the company if there is an accident.
  4. Hi everyone. My name is Billy and I am in the very early stages of setting up my health and safety consultancy SG Safety Group LTD. I am also a qualified Arborist but unfortunately injury has forced a new career path. I am after some thoughts from you guys on how useful my new business venture would be to the arb industry. I know through experience that if you want to register with CHAS or SAFEcontractor they make you jump through many hoops so I could help with this and also compliance with the law. It's only going to get worse for red tape. My plan is to offer services that include: LOLER inspections Bespoke health and safety policies Responsible person status on a retainer Safety audits and inspections COSHH assessments Risk assessments Method statements Fire risk assessments Certified Manual handling training Certified First aid training Certified COSHH training plus a few other things. I know that a lot of you trade as sole traders and some of these services won't be of any use to you but any thoughts on what will work or what I might be wasting my time with would be great. The Arb industry isn't the only industry I service but with my background it is something I want to explore. All the training can be done at your premises or home. Anyway let me know your thoughts and please be gentle.
  5. Hi, We are planning to run a ROLO course to enable some of our blokes to qualify for their CSCS cards, I have a few spare places for £65 a head. We will be running it on 30 July at our yard in North Essex. Please PM me if interested ATB Steve
  6. Here's a short film of why you shouldn't use a chainsaw and a fork lift truck Have you found any other gems from days gone by.. I remember one from Merrist wood called 'Tractor Action' with what sounded like Joan Collins narrating it. Any one got a copy they could post!

  8. Just wondering how many people have had the requirement for flame retardant clothing whilst undertaking treework. There doesn't appear to be much information about whether our current chainsaw gear is retardant or not.. Stihl Hi-flex trousers say they are 'heat resistant'. Is there any brands that make flame retardant and chainsaw protective clothing, or is it a case of wearing an overall to add just another layer whilst working!!? Any thoughts or solutions to this would be appreciated!
