Plant operator safety

The safety of plant operators and workers on site should be seriously considered at all times.

Extensive health and safety protocols and risk assessments should be implemented to ensure everyone’s safety on site.

Below is an example of how risks to plant operators were reduced:

  • A green beacon was installed on plant, which only flashed when the operative was wearing a seatbelt;
  • The beacon was also connected to the dead man lever, which meant that the hydraulics would not activate until the seatbelt was connected and the green beacon was flashing.
