The Arborist Safety Training Institute (ASTI) is now accepting applications for grants to fund safety training events for commercial arborists across the country. Funding covers many different areas of tree work, including safety skills including advanced rigging dynamics, slings, lines, hitches, work positioning, and fall protection.
This grant program, launched by the Tree Care Industry Association Foundation (TCIAF) in 2013, was created to help prevent injuries and deaths in a very high-risk industry where important safety training can help save lives.
Grant applications are accepted twice per year.
The next deadline to apply to apply is March 1, 2022.
