*Please note: Prices subject to change without notice.
In addition we have a comprehensive video library of available best practice procedures on how to safely, correctly and efficiently start, load and chain down specialized equipment such as milling machines, asphalt pavers, asphalt rollers, Material Transfer Vehicles and Graders (plus many others) onto transporters for relocation. In order to comply with health and safety requirements as well as ensuring mishaps, misunderstandings and mistakes don't occur,(which are expensive and unnecessary) perhaps you ought to invest in your staff by ensuring they fully understand and realize what their responsibilities are to carry out their task, and how to do the task properly and safely.
Too often companies in our industry do not actually understand the basic and proper steps to do particular tasks correctly and safely, and attempt to make up for these shortcomings with lots of hazard registers to sign, simply to cover themselves legally (or so they might think), when in fact upon closer inspection more often than not these hazard registers are seriously lacking in relevant detail and correct steps while not really offering any guidance or helpful advice on best practice to people at all. Does this sound like you?
Often a mishap or injury will occur from these lack of relevant procedures,(caused by people not understanding how to do their job properly) and if an investigation was done thoroughly enough, you may be leaving yourself exposed to criticism and prosecution.
There are three basic things any employee must know and understand:
1. What is my job?
2. How do I do my job?
3. How am I performing at my job?
Not really very difficult or unreasonable things to ask of any employer are they?
But who actually does this in our industry?
Perhaps it is time to be serious about this issue and get some proper help from us.
We also have a video available on how to hand screed hotmix properly, because let's be honest, few people out there know how to do this fundamental task correctly.
When you are ready to start stepping up to the mark give us a call.
