The Tree Hazard Awareness course, developed in conjunction with Cheshire County Council and aimed at managers with trees on their sites, is delivered online. It is designed to raise awareness of dead, dying or dangerous trees, which can cause hazards in the workplace and to lead to safer working environments for employees.
Arboriculture lecturer Duncan Slater said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for site managers to develop an understanding of dangerous trees in their workplace. This course aims to make it clear to people which trees have the potential to fall so they can deal with them appropriately."
