Congratulations to our team members, Paul Hughes and Juan Carlos Mancia, for earning the reputable title of Certified Treecare Safety Professional (CTSP). This important designation signifies Harrison McPhee Inc's commitment to safe practices in arboricultural operations. CTSP's are kept abreast of the latest technological advances and regulatory activities affecting the industry through the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) safety network, and must commit to ongoing education in the safety field in order to maintain their certification.
Paul Hughes, CTSP heads up the Harrison McPhee, Inc. Safety Team
Juan Carlos Mancia, CTSP will keep the HMI team trained in all new safety procedures.
Because safety regulations and industry standards are continually evolving, the ongoing education requirement is vital to maintaining a legitimate safety program within a given company. In order to fulfill program requirements, CTSP's must complete a study guide, attend a two-day training workshop, and pass a rigorous exam. Once certified, CTSP's must complete at least 30 hours of training others, or receiving education themselves, every three years.
Consumers can have greater peace of mind with the knowledge that hiring a tree care company with a CTSP on staff helps to ensure safe and professional arboricultural work on their property.
