EMERGENCY TREEWORKS

DEALING WITH EMERGENCY TREEWORKS?

This Level 3 Award in Emergency Treework Operations covers basic operations to deal with windblown trees and assisted felling using winches / ropes.

WHAT IS COVERED?

This course covers the underpinning knowledge required to deal with emergency treeworks, including legislative requirements, risk assessments and emergency planning. The course looks at planning emergency operations and then deals with the practical skills needed.

This course contains elements from the Level 3 Award in Assisted Fell Operations, and the Level 3 Award in Severing Uprooted Or Windblown Trees – but with the benefit that you won’t need the CS32 / Level 3 Award in Felling & Processing Trees Over 380mm as a pre-requisite.
