The third public review period for the ANSI Z133-2012 – Safety Requirements for Arboricultural Operations is open for comment. This standard contains arboriculture safety requirements for pruning, repairing, maintaining, and removing trees and for using equipment in such operations.
The deadline for submitting comments is December 18, 2016.
Send comments to Tricia Duzan via firstname.lastname@example.org (copy email@example.com). An electronic copy of the proposed revisions is available online.
When making a comment, please include the section you are referencing and be sure to make your comment/suggestion clear. If you are offering rewording of a section, include that as well. The full Z133 document is not out for review. The language out for the third public review reflects substantive changes that occurred at the ASC October 12, 2016 meeting (which focused on comments from the second public review period). Comments made outside the scope of the review or beyond the deadline will not be reviewed by the committee.
