TCIA – Certified Tree Care Safety Professional
The Certified Tree Care Safety Professional program was designed to address several of the challenges to safety that tree care companies face More than a straightforward “safety trainer” credentialing program, CTSP teaches safety professionals strategies and tactics for changing the very “culture” of their organization. A Certified Tree Care Safety Professional is not only to coach his/her team in safe work practices, but also work to change attitudes about safety and motivate other employees to want to participate.
To move forward as an industry and become safer, we need more than standards and requirements. We need an industry-wide commitment to a culture of safety. Through CTSP, a culture of safety can be developed one company and one individual at a time, and as this happens, our industry will be transformed from what it is today.
