Current best practice for using a chainsaw

Current best practice for using a chainsaw. Click below for more chainsaw safety advice.

As part of our ongoing attempts to ensuring all our Enviro Frontier work is conducted to current best practices, we are currently undergoing random work site safety audits.

It is within everybody’s best interests to make sure all of our sites are as clear and as safe as possible. You are required to complete a Site Hazard Safety assessment before commencing works on all Enviro Frontier Sites.

If you would like to discuss further tips on how to maintain site safety please don’t hesitate to contact Enviro Frontier at operations@envirofrontier.com.au

Top Performing TP’s

Why do some Tree Partners get more work than others? This often comes down to our best TP’s providing and updating their compliance documents. NO TP’s will receive work if they are not compliant.
Here’s what you need to ensure that you are compliant and giving yourself the best chance to receive work:

  • Insurances: we require workers compensation (Australia) or ACC (New Zealand), motor vehicle insurance, public liability and company registration (this is the basic level requirement)
  • TM Training: If you have not received training on how to use our Tree Manager software including the app – please call and book in your training
  • Envirofrontier Induction: It is a requirement that you and all your staff complete the induction by the 11/20/18
  • Any certificates that you and your staff have need to be uploaded on to Tree Manager. There should be a minimum of 2 certificates per full time employee – we require all your staff registered with their certificates in TreeManager

Once we have your compliance documents, a few hints where TP’s fall short that will help improve your KPI’s are:

  • Use the app!! Turnaround time gets decreased, Envirofrontier are updated and your KPI’s will go through the roof!
  • After job acceptance organise an ETA within 2 hours. If within 1.5 hours you have not heard from the site contact add a note in TM highlighting the issue. Both of these should be put on our scheduling and communications within TM
  • Completing costing in an organised manner. Usually listing them with any staff first (climber, supervisor, groundsman etc.), then machinery (truck, chipper etc.), then any others (ute, tip fees etc.).

New Zealand

Envirofrontier are currently going through the final stages of Site Wise compliance and accreditation and other relevant procedures to commence works within NZ. It has been a long process Envirofrontier is committed to in making sure we have value add for all of our clients in New Zealand. We appreciate all the co-operation and patience from our current NZ tree partners and look forward to commencement within the coming weeks.
