How to Control Your Heavy Machineries
Being in the industry for a long time, Axis Capital Group, a company which rents and sells capital equipment in Singapore and has now expanded to Jakarta, Indonesia to embrace a larger market across Asia, realizes that being an operations manager is one of the most challenging task in the workplace.
If you work around any kind of heavy equipment, you need to have a healthy respect for it. Most, if not all, equipment used in construction, mining, forestry, farming and other industries is big and powerful – and for those reasons, inherently dangerous. And although most of us are well aware of the warnings and the hazards involved, every year around the world there are still thousands of heavy equipment-related incidents that result in property damage or injuries and, unfortunately in some cases, fatalities.
As there are so many types of machines to operate and a lot more newer versions every now and there, it seems that there is no concrete tip on how to control heavy equipment that suits all variations. Obviously every machine and every situation comes with its own set of hazards, but there are some general safety rules you can review and follow to help you end every work day safely.
