When you employ the service of a contractor you naturally demand peace of mind should anything unforeseen happen. For peace of mind we carry £5 million of public liability insurance should anything happen. We are also hold NPTC (National Proficiency Tests Council – see below) competency certificates for the use of chainsaws and tree climbing so you can be assured we are working to nationally recognised standards and more importantly working safely.
NPTC are part of City and guilds offer a host of qualifications across a range of industries. There are several qualifications for tree surgery and if your tree surgeon does not hold any NPTC or similar qualifications then he may well be a cowboy and may not be legally allowed to use a chainsaw commercially. Without qualifications, any insurance may also be void. Ask to see their chainsaw licence, they should have a credit card sized photo card to show you.
