ABA partners and the Vet-Safety project team combined their skills at the recent event hosted by Transilvania University of Brasov. Experienced ABA skills verifiers and mentors supported the training & assessment of ground-based chainsaw (ECC) operators and instructors. Consolidation of previous skills & refining of techniques used in practice included assessment of theoretical knowledge during the workshop sessions.
In addition, further work supported the continuous development of the Erasmus + Vet-Safety project on work at height safety which includes the use of chainsaws. The ECC standards for work at heights have made great progress with a new safety level developed and due for release at the next joint ABA/Vet-Safety event to be held in Czech Republic during June 2017.
