A video of workers trying to “tame”an out-of-control concrete filling machine using various means is a hilarious reminder of the risks involved with the use of this machinery on construction sites.
When workers are being trained on equipment, they need to be taught how to handle the machine in every scenario. The hazards associated with concrete filling machines and the risks should have been assessed and workers should have been trained on not only how to safely use this machine but what to do if something went wrong, as it did in this case. This training is over and above the general safety induction training in the form of the white card which every construction worker in Oz must undertake.
Although the video is a funny lesson, the outcome could have been more serious if someone had been injured. The video shows an out of control concrete filling machine, spinning around on a construction site. Workers confused by the whole situation undertake various means of getting the machine under control, without any success while risking their own safety at the same time.
