Workers in quarry, aggregates and cement operations face a variety of industry specific safety hazards. The evolution of machinery has yielded massive equipment capable of moving more tonnage quicker, but the addition of heavy equipment to these jobsites increases risk for injury. The Operation and Maintenance Manual (OMM) should be consulted for product safety information, but that is just part of the equation.
The human element of jobsite safety is just as important and that is why we created SAFETY.CAT.COM™. It offers online training and free safety videos, safety checklists and toolbox talks, along with other resources to help ensure workers go Safely Home. Everyone. Every Day.™
