Controlling the risks

  • Always conduct a pre use safety check before using equipment. If there are any problems, please contact your local branch and they will be happy to help
  • Always ensure the Roll Over Protection Structure (ROPS) frame is in place before use
  • The seatbelt must always be worn during operation (unless in exceptional circumstances where your risk assessment deems not to be i.e. working near water)
  • Never attempt to jump out of the machine if it tips. This is the main cause of serious injury 
  • Driving with the skip raised on dumpers is the main cause of dumper tips. For your own and others safety, please do not do this. Unsuitable and unstable ground conditions greatly increase the risk of machines tipping 
  • Prepare your working area safely and remain aware of your surroundings throughout the operation 
  • Where retractable tracks are fitted always leave in the widest position when conditions allow
