Using battery powered cutters

Sites should consider their impact on the community, environment and workforce and look for ways to reduce or balance any negative issues. 

An assessment of the working environment should take place before the project commences, to appropriately assess the risks and identify the procedures required to effectively and safely fulfil the project.

Below is an example of how a site adapted equipment to accommodate for their working environment:

  • On a site where there was a significant amount of on-site rebar cutting necessary, a battery powered cutter was deployed;
  • This was much lighter than the traditional cutter and had significant environmental benefits;
  • The cutter was also safer than traditional petrol cutters as this minimised the need for petrol use on site.
