Safety and Training
All Rain Shadow employees receive extensive training for each piece of equipment they operate and are certified to exceed industry standards.
Safety and Professionalism are core values at Rain Shadow and safety is our #1 priority.
Rain Shadow employees are reviewed annually on climbing techniques and are certified to exceed industry standards. Our annual safety training includes aerial rescue, electrical hazard awareness training, rope and rigging techniques and general climbing safety. Our on-site forepersons are advanced-level climbers; who, conduct monthly on-the-job assessments on aerial rescue practice as part of their job responsibilities.
In addition to annual training, in 2019 Rain Shadow brought in North American Training Solutions to perform an intensive two-day training module focused on electrical hazard awareness and aerial rescue training.
All Rain Shadow employees receive extensive on-the-job training for each piece of equipment they operate. Utilizing in-house supervision, employees are encouraged to familiarize themselves with all machines used on-site from pole pruners to chainsaws, stump grinders, chippers, and aerial lifts. All employees are certified in EHAP training on a yearly basis, including First Aid, and CPR. We all have up-to-date flagger cards and our drivers carry a CDL (commercial driving license).
