Chipper Operator Specialist Program

At the 2012 TCIA Winter Management Conference, TCIA announced plans to educate approximately 3,000 chipper operators across the U.S. from September 2012 through August 2013. TCIA’s new Chipper Operations Specialist workshop uses a nationally recognized curriculum to train tree care employees in hazards as well as accepted practices for brush chipper operation and other loosely associated tasks. The training program, built for crew members who often do not receive formal training opportunities, seeks to increase employee involment with overall safety compliance and self-policing. 

More information, including upcoming workshops, can be found on the TCIA website by clicking here.
