Site is a More
The construction industry is finally waking up to the need for increased safety on construction sites. The industry has come a long way over the past decade. This is down to companies own initiative as well as complying with ever tighter Health & Safety regulations.
Companies have recognized that implementing safety does not impact on the works. In fact, they are finding that a safer site is a more productive site. Contractors can no longer afford the time involved in site closure following a major incident. Site workers are also more confident if they know they are working in a protected environment.
As Hyundai Construction Equipment demonstrated at Plantworx, there are solutions to monitor areas within a 5 m radius of an excavator - much of it a blind spot to the operator. Plant hire companies are now also enveloping safety in the equipment they put on hire.
Major plant hire company, Lynch say that they are passionate about making sites safer and that's why they have taken a stand by leading the way in revolutionising visibility on heavy plant.
By its very nature, construction remains a high-risk industry, with a number of people being seriously injured or killed by large plant each year. Many of these benefit from the support services provided by the Lighthouse Club benevolent fund.
