Improve Worksite Safety 2022
Due to the recent number of thefts in the last couple of months, we have decided to look at a number of ways to improve the safety of your worksite. Breaking it down into two main categories: Protecting people and Protecting onsite assets.
The single most effective way to avoid incompetent mistakes onsite is to train all your employees and verify that they can comply with regulatory laws.
Slippery surfaces are a substantial hazard when it comes to work sites. The ground is almost never flat, riddled with rubble, curbs and ramps for worksite operations. Best practice is to use high visibility signage. Whether its hi-vis tape on the ground or head height signage, the best part about warning people is that they can read when they need to!
Falling objects tend to be the main reason for injuries on/near worksites. For example, a construction site in the city has to deal with pedestrians making their daily commutes as well as their own employees. For pedestrians in close proximity, extra safety measures must be taken to ensure that there is overhead protection like scaffolding.
Machines under operation are another dangerous aspect about working onsite. Not all machines offer impeccable visibility so we need to ensure the proper PPE is worn and most importantly, that operators can clearly see you. Keeping a clear line of sight with the operator will help them identify that you are within their working vicinity. It is a team effort to keep everyone safe onsite!
If your site is substantially large, then consider hiring a night guard. There are a number of security businesses available in Adelaide like Titanium Security, MSS Security, and AMS Security to name a few. In this case, usually a combination of more than one option would provide the best security for your site.
For peace of mind, all of our machines are fitted with GPS systems with a select few that operate with Geofencing. Dry hire from us today and experience the RAM difference!
