TCIA accident survey for 2017 operations is under way

The Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) annual accident survey for 2017 operations is now underway.

The data that the TCIA survey has generated in the past three years has been invaluable for helping TCIA serve the needs of professional arborists more effectively; and the wealth of information provides TCIA with incredible leverage with OSHA and other entities.

TCIA is making it quick and easy for professional arborists to participate anonymously by providing the survey online. The survey is accessible at

The accident survey will be open until April 15, 2018.

As a reward for responding promptly and fully to the accident survey, one fully-completed survey response will be selected at random to receive up to $250 in safety training materials. To be eligible for this reward, respondents must provide the contact information requested on the survey form. Providing contact information is optional, and the information will not be used for marketing purposes.

All responses will be treated with the strictest confidentiality; data will only be shared in aggregate form with the outside world.
