Conducting road and bridge construction presents the need to carefully consider safety around moving plant and exclusion zones. Workers on foot and their interaction with operating mobile plant also creates line of sight hazards.
This course uses a panoramic scene to present typical hazards when constructing roads and bridges. In this scene, there are several pieces of mobile plant in operation including cranes, diggers, skidsteer loaders, and trucks. There are also workers moving in and out of the area.
When mobile equipment in operation is placed together with workers on foot there is a need for adequate and safe separation to ensure that a worker does not come into contact with mobile plant in operation. The training provides information about plant to plant exclusion zones, visibility and communication.
At the completion of this course learners will:
- Learn how to apply the Safety Hierarchy of Controls to address workplace hazards.
- Learn as a worker on foot, how to work around operating mobile plant.
- Understand machine exclusion zones when operating multiple powered mobile plant.
