Arboricultural Health and Safety Survey
An Arboricultural Health and Safety Survey, also known as a Hazard Safety Audit, allows tree owners to be reassured that their trees do not pose an unacceptable risk to guests, trespassers or users of theirs and neighbouring land.
In all circumstances the owner of the land on which the tree stands is liable for the consequences of any failure of the tree, in whole or in part. Clients should therefore consider the benefit and assurance provided by a professional arboricultural report, in this instance an Arboricultural Health and Safety Survey.
Our consultants carry out ground level tree inspections which provide a detailed analysis of tree condition, any defects and their consequence. We offer expert advice in the form of a tree work schedule and recommend timescales for completing any works identified. Where further investigation works are required in the instance of suspected decay, we are able to use our decay detection equipment to carry out a more detailed examination to highlight any weaknesses.
Aboricultural Health and Safety Surveys are necessary in a wide range of situations including:
Schools often have many trees and maintaining their condition so that there is no danger to children of falling trees or branches is of paramount importance. A regular Arboricultural Health and Safety Survey allows an assessment to be made of the trees to ensure that they do not pose a risk.
Private Estates, Parks and Woodlands
All areas which have public access should have a regular Arboricultural Health and Safety Survey of the trees to ensure that the public are not at risk from a failing tree.
CBA Trees provides health and safety audits for any number of trees, to assist clients in meeting their legal responsibilities.
