About ASWP

The ASWP is an Ontario committee of volunteers in the arborist trade whose purpose is to assist government agencies, WSIB and Safe Workplace Associations to improve the health and safety of our industry. Formed in 1999, the committee has evolved over the years. On January 1, 2011 the committee hit a mile stone when a terms of reference was put in place. This helps with committee structure and ensures its future continuance.

The committee is made up of 12 members, 4 each to represent the commercial, municipal and utility facets of the industry. Membership is open to anyone employed or who employs workers directly within the arborist industry. The committee has representation for both employees and employers in the industry.
