This leaflet covers the safe working practices to be used by those involved in aerial tree rescue.

It should be read in conjunction with Tree-climbing operations (AFAG401), Mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPS) for tree work (AFAG403) and HSE’s Treework webpages.

A rescuer’s safety takes priority at all times and everyone involved in aerial tree rescue must have appropriate training in all the tasks required.
