    When should a risk assessment take place?

    Tree Surgeons

    Does a site risk assessment need to take place before a tree surgeon does work at my property? If so, do I make the assessment or do they?

    "The tree surgeon will complete a risk assessment and should also provide a method statement, this is a health and safety requirement."

    "Your tree surgeon should be doing a site-specific risk assessment for the task at hand.

    All you need to do is make them aware of any unforeseen hazards."

    "Hello There
    Going on experience
    That there should be some meeting
    To take place
    As there are neighbours
    Sheds and buildings greenhouses
    All these have to be considered
    As in there may be dangerous
    In the way on the tree removal

    And to find the safest way possible

    Many Thanks, D.T.TREE SURGEONS"

    "The risk assessment should be a part of your tree surgeons everyday jobs and completed by them as they will need to assess the risks to them and their employees. Risk assessments should be completed before any work starts as they should be specific to each job. Generally, a risk assessment is completed for the well being of the company as it can protect the company owner in the event of an accident. From experience, they are not usually completed for smaller private jobs as there is normally minimal risk (this choice is made by the company owner who will expect all liability) commercial jobs are different they are normally required to show evidence that you have taken all the necessary requirements to protect the employees."
