SRP Offers Free Electrical Safety Workshop: Event Helps Tree Workers, Landscapers, Excavators Avoid Danger

February 13, 2019

SRP is sponsoring a FREE Electrical Safety Workshop to educate tree workers, landscapers, roofers, painters, scaffold workers and excavators on the potential hazards of working near overhead and underground electrical power lines and other utilities. Any individuals who work around utility lines are encouraged to attend the workshop for their personal safety.


Instruction will be in English with Spanish translation available.


The event will include safety presentations on overhead and underground electrical lines including: ADOSH updates, safe work practices, arc flash exposure and step potential, vehicular accidents and staying safe, tailboards, tree trimming job briefing, crane safety and blue stake. Presentations by field workers of SRP and Asplundh Tree Expert Company.


Participants must be 18 years or older. The workshop includes full hot breakfast and a chance to win raffle prizes. Employers may register up to 20 current employees at one time. Workshop attendance is limited, please register in advance. Tree workers may be eligible for CEUs (A/U/T/M) from the International Society of Arboriculture, attendees are responsible for submitting to ISA.


When: 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, February 23.

Registration and breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. at SRP’s PERA Club, 1 East Continental Drive in Tempe.


Why: Every year, professional tree trimmers, landscapers, roofers, painters and excavators are killed or seriously injured in tree-trimming and excavation accidents with electrical contact. Workers operate dangerous equipment and are vulnerable to serious injuries when working near overhead and underground electric lines and other utilities.
