The TreeStation takes the health and safety of its employees, the general public and all other persons who may be affected by its operations very seriously. At the end of the day, we want everyone to go home safe, and the property around us to remain undamaged. We realise that treework and wood processing are potentially hazardous industries, and we are genuine in our quest to identify, minimise, and where possible eliminate hazards. Every job is carefully planned and works documentation is produced, providing our teams with Site Specific Risk Assessments and Method Statements. This is as recommended by BS 3998:2010, and in line with:
- The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974
- Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
- Industry guidance such as Arboriculture and Forestry Advisory Group leaflets
We also pay a great deal of attention to our work procedures in the yard, to minimise safety risks and occupational health hazards. Wherever possible, we tailor the work around our workers’ physical needs and limitations. For more details, you can consult our Health and Safety Policy.
But don’t just take our word for it… As a company, The TreeStation (or Ecos as it was previously) has been safecontractor approved since 2008 and Chas accredited since 2014. Both schemes provide independent assessments of contractors for their health and safety standards. This demonstrates to clients our competency in this area, and ensures we are up to date with current health and safety legislation, requirements and best practice. Find out more about all our accreditations here.
And for complete peace of mind, in the unlikely event that something were to go wrong, we are comprehensively insured.
