Tree climbing with a full compliment of safety gear shows your customers and employees that you are serious about doing the job right and preserving everyone's safety. Tree climbing injuries are very unforgiving, and a few dollars spent on safety gear and standards could prevent thousands in medical bills and lost productivity. Every climber should own and use at least a helmet, chaps, eye and hearing protection, and gloves.
The 2012 ANSI Z.133 standard covers the safety requirements for tree care operations.
Perhaps the most essential piece of climbing safety gear, a good helmet is a priceless investment. Unlike hard hats, climbing helmets protect against impact from all sides.
Hard hats protect the user from impact from the top only, and are absolutely essential safety gear for ground workers. (A true helmet is required for tree climbing.)
Protect your eyes against chain saw dust, debris, and branches. Safety glasses, mesh goggles, and mesh screens are available, including the popular Bug Eyez mesh goggles.
We have ear plugs and ear muffs for use around chainsaws and machinery. Hard-shelled ear muffs offer the highest protection, and ear-plugs offer protection without extra bulk. Helmet ear muffs available.
The best way to pickup all the required safety equipment for a tree climber or ground worker at one time with a substantial savings.
