Use of Remote Control Trench Rollers on Site

During deep drainage works for the new Badenoch & Strathspey Community Hospital and Health Care Centre in Aviemore, the Balfour Beatty project team worked closely with groundswork subcontractor David Smith in the use and operation of remote control trench rollers on site.

The machines are operated by remote control and this provides a number of benefits. Firstly safety is increased as the operator does not need to be in the actual trench to control it. Secondly there are no vibrations from the machines, reducing the potential for HAVs.

This approach is part of the Balfour Beatty aim to design out Hand Arm Vibration syndrome (HAVS) across all Balfour Beatty sites by 2020.
