Haas earns Treecare certification
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Luke Haas, Arpin, has completed the Certified Treecare Safety Professional (CTSP) program offered by the Tree Care Industry Association. The CTSP program allows tree care employees to become certified safety experts, thereby empowering and encouraging a culture of safety.
CTSP’s are kept abreast of the latest technological advances and regulatory activities affecting the industry through the TCIA safety network, and must commit to ongoing education in the safety field in order to maintain their certification.
Because safety regulations and industry standards are continually evolving, the ongoing education requirement is vital to maintaining a legitimate safety program within a given company. In order to fulfill program requirements, CTSP’s must complete a study guide, attend a two-day training workshop, and pass a rigorous exam. Once certified, CTSP’s must complete at least 30 hours of training others, or receiving education themselves, every three years.
