Electrical Hazard Awareness Program (EHAP) – 7.5 CEUs (OCCB, ISA & TCIA)
By CRUX Climbing, Rigging and Training (CCRT)
Eligible for 7.5 CEUs (CCB, ISA & TCIA)!!!
Electricity is a serious and widespread hazard to arborists and other high angle industries; and one of the leading causes of tree care related fatalities. Furthermore, almost all high angle industries or those working at heights have at least some exposure to this hazard. A street lamp circuit, a cable TV wire, even a phone line can be energized with enough voltage to kill. Indirect contact through a green tree branch or other conductive object is an ever-present threat. One doesn't have to touch a wire to be electrocuted, and about half of all electrocution fatalities are the result of indirect contact.
EHAP helps meet yearly OSHA safety requirements to recognize and avoid electrical hazards for anyone who works near utility lines. EHAP must be used in combination with documented on-the-job skills training and verification to meet OSHA 1910.269 requirements.
Once a candidate has completed all training, TCIA will issue a certificate of completion (valid for one year from date of issue), transcript storage in the TCIA database, helmet decal, and laminated wallet card.

TCIA’s Aerial Rescue Training Program (ARTP)
TCIA’s Aerial Rescue Training Program™ (ARTP) helps you protect your employees and meet the aerial rescue training requirements mandated by ANSI Z133.1 and OSHA. The most common reason for double fatalities in tree care is failed aerial rescue attempts. An emergency could develop any time one of your crews is aloft, and your employees must know how to react.
This certificate program is designed to be used in combination with on-the-job training and practice, so that crews have the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate an emergency situation and potentially rescue an injured tree worker. (more…)
