This Minimum Industry Standards book MIS301 is on knots and hitches for tree climbing and rigging.
The Minimum Industry Standards (MIS) series is produced by Arboriculture Australia Ltd in consultation with the national arboriculture and vegetation management community. These industry peer-reviewed documents explain the core standards of skills and equipment with which competent practitioners should be familiar with. The prime purpose of the MIS series is to provide minimum standards for the safety of tree workers while encouraging and fostering innovative practices.
Arboriculture Australia Ltd. are currently working with subject-matter experts to write and illustrate a full suite of Minimum Industry Standards describing the work tasks conducted by practical, hands-on tree workers throughout Australia, including pruning, tree identification, equipment inspection, chainsaw use, cabling, and many other practices and skills. The first four Minimum Industry Standards are already in print, and available for purchase from Vermeer Parts Counters in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
What are the benefits of having minimum industry standards:
- Training & assessment
