A Safer Worksite

Tips for a safer worksite:

  • Do not operate a machine before having read and understood the Operator's manual.
  • Before each shift, check equipment to ensure that parts, equipment and accessories are in safe operating condition and free from apparent damage that could cause failure while in use.
  • Make sure all defects are corrected before the vehicle is placed in service.
  • Wear seat belts.
  • Do not drive a machine in reverse before you have made sure there is nobody behind the machine.
  • Make sure all personnel are clear before using dumping or lifting devices.
  • Lower all blades, buckets, dumper bodies, etc. when not in use.
  • Leave all controls in neutral when not in use.
