Trimming the trees to prevent accidents

This morning I noticed one good thing that the Government of Makati City in my neighborhood did. The branches of trees that have encroached on power cables were trimmed down.

As shown in the YouTube video below, this is a good measure to prevent accidents that may happen during the typhoon season in the Philippines that happens from June until December, practically half of the year.
However, as shown in the video, the man working on the tree is not fully protected. He should wear protective clothing like hard hat and gloves. We'll never know when accidents may happen.
Also, the branches should be cut before the rainy season begins so that it will be easier to manage.
