The Best Ways To Stay Safe as an Arborist

Arborists are people who cultivate, manage, and study trees, shrubs, vines, and other woody plants. They focus on the health and safety of trees, which typically involves climbing them. While there are courses and licenses arborists must have to carry out these responsibilities efficiently, it’s still important to know additional safety tips. Here are some of the best ways to stay safe as an arborist to avoid serious workplace accidents.

Avoid Power Lines

One of the most foundational tips for new or experienced arborists is to avoid power lines. Trees can reach amazingly tall heights, and while it’s exciting and adrenaline-inducing to climb them, you may occasionally face a power line. Avoid this at all costs. You never want to work near a power line, as you risk electrocution. Always inspect the area beforehand to spot any active power lines near you.

Always Wear PPE

Likewise, you must always wear your personal protective equipment (PPE). There are many reasons why you need PPE in the workplace. Whether you’re protecting your face and eyes, hands, feet, or head, always wear your PPE around the worksite. Arborists’ PPE includes safety helmets, climbing boots, a safety harness, safety goggles, and gloves. Make sure this equipment fits comfortably yet securely. Even when wearing PPE, you never want loose items to fall and injure you on the job.

Inspect the Trees Before You Climb

One of the best ways to stay safe as an arborist is to inspect the trees before you climb. Not every tree is healthy and rooted. Dead trees may seem sturdy but may actually have a hollowed-out center due to termites or disease. If you attempt to climb one, you risk falling. Additionally, tree branches get more delicate the higher you climb. Plan out your route so that you can avoid any potential mishaps the further up you go. Keep an eye out for moss or plants, as they can weaken trees, too.

Video Message by António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, on International Youth Day 2022. Today, we celebrate International Youth Day, and the power of partnerships across generations. This year’s theme — “Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages” — reminds us of a basic truth: we need people of all ages, young and old alike, to join forces to build a better world for all. Too often, ageism, bias and discrimination prevent this essential collaboration. When young people are shut out of the decisions being made about their lives, or when older people are denied a chance to be heard, we all lose. Solidarity and collaboration are more essential than ever, as our world faces a series of challenges that threaten our collective future. From COVID-19 to climate change, to conflicts, poverty, inequality and discrimination, we need all hands on deck to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and build the better, more peaceful future we all seek. We need to support young people with massive investments in education and skills-building — including through next month’s Transforming Education Summit. We also need to support gender equality and expanded opportunities for young people to participate in civic and political life. It’s not enough to listen to young people — we need to integrate them into decision-making mechanisms at the local, national and international levels. This is at the heart of our proposal to establish a new Youth Office at the United Nations. And we need to ensure that older generations have access to social protection and opportunities to give back to their communities and share the decades of lived experience they have accumulated. On this important day, let’s join hands across generations to break down barriers, and work as one to achieve a more equitable, just and inclusive world for all people.

Military actions with even the smallest potential to jeopardize nuclear safety or security must stop immediately, said IAEA’s chief. “These actions could lead us to serious consequences,” he added. Briefing the Security Council today (11 Aug) on the situation in Ukraine, the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Rafael Mariano Grossi said that the nuclear safety and security situation at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) has been deteriorating rapidly, “to the point of becoming very alarming.” Today’s Security Council meeting took place a few days after shelling at the ZNPP sparked widespread alarm about the potential risk of a severe nuclear accident at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, which has six reactors. Based on the most recent information, Grossi noted, IAEA experts have preliminarily assessed that there is no immediate threat to nuclear safety as a result of the shelling or other military actions. However, “this could change at any moment,” he stressed. “Any nuclear catastrophe would be unacceptable, and therefore preventing it should be our overarching goal,” Grossi said. Grossi also briefed on his efforts to agree and lead an IAEA expert mission to the site as soon as possible. Director General Grossi reiterated that the mission would require the cooperation, understanding, and facilitation of both Ukraine and Russia, as well as the continued support of the United Nations and Secretary-General António Guterres. Also briefing at the Security Council, Vasily Nebenzya, Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations, said that at the Tenth Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, Kyiv’s representatives “are making cynical and absurd accusations, saying that Russia is attacking Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plants.” He added, “These propaganda attacks are being seized upon by the Western press.” “Russia continues to deploy disinformation to distract from the realities on the ground and now claims that Ukraine is culpable for the situation at the Zaporizhzhia facility,” said Bonnie D. Jenkins, US’s Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security. “This completely ignores the real issue, which is Russia’s illegal presence at the facility,” she added. According to Sergiy Kyslytsya, Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations, the only way to “ultimately remove the nuclear threats stemming from the illegal Russian presence at the nuclear power plant is the withdrawal of the Russian troops and the return of the station to the legitimate control for Ukraine.” He added, “ensuring the safety and security of nuclear facility cannot be seen as a goodwill gesture. This is the duty of an occupying power in accordance with international humanitarian law.”

The world’s first in-person Global Black Pride (GBP) events were held in Toronto, exactly one month after Pride and overlapping with the city’s Caribbean Carnival. Founded in 2020, it is an event that brings together Black 2SLGBTQIA+ communities across all continents. One of these events was the Black Pride Kiki Ball, co-hosted by the City of Toronto with the Toronto Kiki Ballroom Alliance (TKBA). In Canada, ballroom culture has exploded in recent years. Founded in 2010 in Toronto by Legendary Twysted Miyake-Mugler and Legendary Vixen, TKBA is a space to nurture the needs of 2SLGBTQIA+ BIPOC youth facing barriers and trauma. Started in New York during the 1960s, ballroom spaces were created by the queer and trans Black and Latinx community due to discrimination and a need for a safer nightlife. A function that hosts multiple competitive categories, each event typically consists of a DJ, a commentator, a judges panel, ballroom walkers and spectators coming together to celebrate one another and compete. For the world’s first in-person GBP event, this global event celebrated the unique intersection of these diverse cultures, marking how far the movement has come over the course of 60 years. For those who may be hearing about it for the first time, what exactly is a ball and what does it mean for the community?

Almost 500,000 people in Canada identify as bisexual, according to official data from Statistics Canada. However, although a growing portion of the Canadian population identifies as bisexual, those who come out as such are still met with denial, or their identities are questioned. This phenomenon is referred to as bisexual erasure. One example of this is when a bisexual person is said to be “experimenting,” or transitioning to gay or lesbian, as described by 2SLGBTQQIA+ organizations, like GLAAD or Pflag.

Global Video: Raging Asian Women make themselves heard through traditional Taiko drumming


Related Videos On: Raging Asian Women make themselves heard through traditional Taiko drumming


In celebration of Asian Heritage Month and Pride in Canada, a group of pan-Asian women and non-binary drummers called Raging Asian Women (RAW), are making themselves heard through the traditional performance of Japanese Taiko drumming, one of the few ensembles of its kind. In Japanese, "taiko" literally means "drum," first used in ancient Japan over 2000 years ago. However the term has also come to refer to the wider art of traditional and modern Japanese drumming, with a mix of various technical rhythms, forms and instruments. The origins of RAW lay in “trying to fight against stereotypes of Asian women as submissive or quiet or powerless,” said Jody Chan, one of the drummers of the group. Y.J., another member of the group, said that “there’s still moments where I just feel a sense of pride and connection that I don’t think I feel anywhere else” when performing or rehearsing. Asian Heritage Month recognizes the contributions and influence of Canadians from diverse Asian backgrounds to the nation’s history, culture, and achievements.
