The construction of roads has been made a lot easier and fast with the help of the latest technology. In this video you can watch some of the best road construction machines in action.
Here’s a video of construction heavy equipment, some operating successfully, some major fails and some just downright stupid. Either way you can appreciate the power of these massive machines and why a high risk licence is needed to operate one, these are not toys.
Construction trucks do some heavy hauling but the vehicles in this video are unusually impressive just based on their sheer scale.
Let’s watch as trucks haul extreme, oversized construction equipment.
Watch modern road construction machinery in action in this heavy vehicle compilation to reignite your appreciation for these amazing machines.
Just remember while these machines may be impressive, they should never be operated without the appropriate training and high risk license.
Excavators are invaluable on construction sites but without the proper planning and training, they can prove extremely dangerous.
The excavator fails in this video are a reminder of what can go wrong.
Heavy equipment accidents are some of the most common on the construction site and many of them end fatally. It’s important we abide by the site’s health and safety plan and our safety training when on site. It’s also important that everyone operating these machines is qualified to do so including being in possession of a High Risk Licence. Watch the video to see why.
A recent incident at an Australian airport which resulted in one fatality when a person was struck by a truck reminded me of the importance of traffic management and safety when it comes to construction vehicles and equipment on a work site.
It’s tragic to think that one worker didn’t make it past the first week of 2017, but let’s make sure we don’t end up the same way.
Watch these heavy equipment accidents for a reminder of the importance of site safety plans especially where vehicles are involved.
Heavy equipment and machinery are invaluable on the construction work site and in most instances, they are irreplaceable however they also present one of the greatest risks.
In Australia, operators must be in possession of a high risk certificate and all workers on site must be in possession of an induction card, to ensure they are aware of the risks and how to work in a safe and responsible manner.
In the video below we can see how some workplace incidents involving heavy equipment take place.
This video promises to demonstrate 5 of the top construction machines in existence today.
How true are these claims? Watch the video below and see for yourself.
