The Blue Tree Company have recently attained the status of Arb Approved Contractor (ArbAc). That's a national tree surgery competence accreditation scheme operated by the Aboricultural Association.
The team met 65 detailed criteria points covering four key areas:
The accreditation tests all aspects of a tree care business's operation and management, and most importantly, it tests the business at the ‘sharp-end’ by visiting work sites rather than just being office and paperwork based (although this is also checked).
The scheme also seeks to ensure a customer focused approach and helps business better care for their valued customers.
The scheme, which dual-accredits tree surgery contractors with CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Scheme), and offers access to SAFEcontractor scheme, is also SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) registered, which is supported and endorsed by HSE. It has also gained increased recognition at a national level often being used as the benchmark standard by Local Authorities and other government bodies.
Contractors are reassessed every two years to ensure their standards stay at the highest levels and to make sure customers are still satisfied with the service provided.
