MIS307 – Crane Use in Tree Work
A Minimum Industry Standard for Crane Use in Tree Work
This book covers the basics of working with cranes for rigging and access during aerial tree work operations. Although the document is written primarily for the use of the arborist and does not provide any instruction regarding crane use or safety, the aim is to provide straightforward, nationally-shared procedures which will allow arborists and crane operators to work safely together on tree work sites.
About the MIS Series
This book is one in a series of Minimum Industry Standards (MIS) produced by Arboriculture Australia Ltd and the New Zealand Arboricultural Association in consultation with the national arboriculture community in both countries. These industry peer-reviewed documents provide a ‘body of knowledge’ which is shared by practitioners and can be used as the basis for training, dissemination of skills and professional development.
