Tree Academy Track: No Splash, No Ripple - A Path to a Better Job Brief - Shawn Reed, Contract Arborist for National Grid

If we look at an accident as a splash and the effect that an accident has on a person's family and friends as ripples than we need to stop the splash. I believe a job brief is the first step. This presentation is about the importance of a meaningful, quality job brief. We will talk about everything that makes up a quality job brief from the heading to the hazards. So bring your company's Pre Job Safety Brief and join the conversation!
