Safe Vegetation Management Solutions

Maintaining vegetation areas in dangerous or hard to access areas can be a dangerous job, putting your workers in potentially hazardous situations where serious injury could possibly occur.

If you are in a situation where your or members of your team are maintaining land on super steep slopes, alongside highways, dam banks or anywhere you wouldn’t dream of taking a regular ride on mower, read on to discover how you can navigate these vegetation areas with safe vegetation management solutions.

What is vegetation management?

Vegetation management is the process of ridding a space of undesired plants, weed, brush and other vegetation.

How can vegetation management become unsafe for my team?

Unwanted vegetation can actually be a safety hazard in itself. For example, an overgrowth of weeds can covers up a road sign that drivers need to see before making the next turn.

This can in turn make vegetation management somewhat unsafe for the team performing the maintenance.

This is where a Green Climber can help.

Some situations that are likely to become unsafe… and safe vegetation management solutions.

BRUSH CUTTING 

Many areas are not accessible by mowing equipment and require the use of brush cutters. Brush Cutting is not only inefficient, it also puts the operator at risk of injury from debris, slips or falls, back injuries etc. 

TRACTOR & SLASHER 

Tractor slashing is regularly seen as the efficient way to mow large spaces and is utilised in most council areas.Tractors can become top heavy on slopes and staff will push the limits to get the job done, which contributes to roll overs and operator injury. 

RIDE ON MOWERS 

Putting your operator in the driver’s seat will always pose a risk, and with most ride on mowers only capable of tackling slight slopes, areas where you can mow become limited. Most ride on mowers have a manufacturers recommendation of max.15 degrees slope mowing, and if staff are provided one of these machines on a job that exceeds 15 degrees, employers and management are ultimately responsible if the operator is injured.
