The Importance of Tree Safety in Hospitals and Medical Centres

Ensuring tree safety is important in Victorian health centres, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities. Maintaining trees and green areas within the hospital premises is not just significant as large lush trees provide a comfortable environment but it also affects the general safety of the property. 

Regular tree audits and risk analysis should be part of management practices of hospitals and medical centres.  Professional agencies such as ArborSafe can provide annual check-ups of trees for any potential risks and provide reccomendations. This practice can reduce the risk of  any accidents on the premises.

Keeping trees safe also affects the overall quality of the environment at a hospital. Family and friends might want to go for a walk with a sick loved one, and it’s important they feel safe in the environment. A well-maintained area full of trees and garden creates a calm and relaxing atmosphere.

Hospitals and medical centres can be held liable if the trees are not safety compliant. If insurance agencies decide the centre is a fault it could be taken to court and cost the business large out of pocket expenses. Annual tree audit reports provide sound evidence that hospitals and medical centres are doing their due diligence.

Tree management significantly impacts the overall safety of hospitals and medical centres. Evaluating and managing these potential risks should be a core aspect of any hospital’s safety management plan.
