In the construction industry, the involvement of earthmoving machines is permanent. These machines are known to carry out massive work where no human can do. But there are times when these massive machines aren’t required or of any help when it comes to moving small to medium equipment from one place to another. It’s the time to do it manually. However, there are chances and incidences where workers have happened to be injured at their job site. Protect yourself and other around you by following these tips.
- Wear Safety Kits – Your number one priority is safety to yourself and others around. Make sure to wear safety kits and other equipment at your work site. Some of the kits and equipment include; goggles to avoid letting dust particles enter your eyes, hard hats for protecting your head from any falling object, long-sleeve shirt for protecting the skin from rough edges etc.
- Technique – Once you wear all the safety kits and equipment, time for you to do some lifting. Before you even start lifting, consider protecting your back especially if you are going to lift heavy items. Protect your back by lifting the items by bending your knees and hips. This helps you to lift but also protects your back.
- Handles – If there is moving of materials from one place to another, then you need handles to make your work easier and less stressful on your arm at the time of moving.
In Brisbane, earthmoving companies ensure workers follow these tips to move heavy materials at their worksite.
