This standard covers the accessing of trees through climbing (both ladders and using climbing equipment) and by Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP) to carry out rescues in a variety of contexts (pruning operation, cutting, dismantle or rigging).
The aerial rescues include recovery of both conscious and unconscious casualties. When carrying out aerial rescue you must maintain high standards of health and safety at all time for both yourself and the people you will come into contact with. This standard is for those carrying out aerial rescue operations.
