This course is intended to prepare certified, *qualified fallers to work safely and effectively with explosives to remove trees that are too dangerous to fall by conventional methods.
“If conventional methods cannot be safely employed to remove a dangerous tree, blasting or other acceptable methods must be used.” Workers Compensation Act Occupational Health and Safety Regulation 26.26(3).
Blasting is a practice that helps the faller manage the risks associated with dangerous trees. This training makes blasting more readily available to falling operations, and therefore more likely to be used to overcome the risks of managing dangerous trees, jackpots, hang-ups, or windthrow stacks. This training is acceptable to WorkSafeBC (WSBC) for fallers wishing to write the WSBC blasting exam to obtain dangerous tree blasting certification.
