Travis Perkins Hire is refreshing its plant safety handover videos.
The refresh is being done to support the introduction of new machinery that will be available from Travis Perkins Hire. The videos will be available on Travis Perkins Hire drivers’ handsets, and after being transported to site, it is a mandatory requirement that operators are required to watch them. A text link to the video is also sent at the point of order or delivery too.
Each handover hire video outlines the risks and hazards of using the hire vehicles and what measures operators should take to prevent them. They also detail what to do in the event of a tip over.
Alice Wise, head of category for Travis Perkins Hire, said: “The analysis we’ve carried out over the last three years suggests that having mandatory safety videos in place has significantly reduced the number of plant hire accidents and the risk of injury to many of our customers. We want to continue to do what matters and improve plant use, and our new safety handover videos will help familiarize our customers with the latest kit and what they need to do to keep themselves and others safe whilst operating it.”
Travis Perkins has also worked with Hire Association Europe (HAE) on a Plant Round Table committee started in 2019 and has worked with its network of suppliers and manufacturers to get them involved.
