Tree Service
Tree service work requires consistent and coherent communications between all of a crew's members. Setcom has communications systems specifically adapted for the many arboriculture applications that exist. Whether your company focuses on utility line clearing, residential tree trimming, urban forestry, or commercial vegetation management, Setcom's headset equipment will help your team be safer, meet OSHA regulations, and be more productive.

Chippers and chain saws almost always have noise levels that exceed 90 dBA when workers are in close proximity of those machines. In order to protect the hearing of tree care employees and comply with OSHA Standard 1910.95 concerning Occupational Noise Exposure, reliable and rugged equipment is needed. Setcom's 23-24dB noise reduction headsets help in the effort to protect hearing and also provide clear communications amongst a crew. Hearing conservation programs are critical operating requirements in today's tree service industry. Moreover, not only do tree service companies have to comply with Federal OSHA regulations, many states now have their own state-level OSHA-type requirements. An example is Michigan's MIOSHA R 408.15301 Part 53 for Tree Trimming and Removal.
Why Use a Setcom Wireless System?
  • No FCC license required. Unlike using a conventional two-way radio / walkie-talkie, Setcom's systems operate in a license-free frequency band and do not require applying for and maintaining an FCC license which saves you money, time, and the hassle of renewing a license.
  • Hands-Free. No Push-to-Talk (PTT) Required. With Setcom wireless systems, just start talking and your crew members will hear you. Setcom's open microphone mode in combination with superior noise cancellation technology allows for hands-free communication without the burden of pressing a button to communicate. This increases safety and allows you to keep your hands where they should be like on your chainsaw or rope.
  • Full Duplex Communications. Have a normal human conversation without the stilted and difficult nature of a half-duplex, two-way radio discussion that often ends up requiring one crew member to repeat himself a second time.
Ground Crew to Aerial / Tree Crew
One of the most important applications for improved verbal interaction while on a worksite for arborists is communications between a spotter on the ground and a worker in an aerial lift or tree. Proper communications keeps all team members safer and allows for tree trimming work to be done in a more efficient manner which saves tree cutting companies time and money. With Setcom equipment deployed to your work team, there is significantly reduced shouting, misunderstood communications, and unintelligible hand signals.
