Keep your people safe from moving vehicles when loading and unloading 2

01 Aug 2017 -
Decide who the loading and unloading authority is 
Another way to avoid serious LUEZ accidents is to determine who the authority figure will be during the loading and unloading process. Is it the forklift operator? The truck driver? The person operating the excavator? All worksites are different and all on-site teams work differently. But the factor of leadership is common to all worksites. A strong hierarchy of control needs to be followed, wherever you are. Determining a leadership figure makes communicating between multiple parties simpler. Completing loading and unloading tasks will be less dangerous when movement is commanded by a singular figure. 

Cease activity when personnel can’t see 
If at any point personnel can’t see each other during a loading and unloading procedure, all activity should stop immediately. Not being able to see or communicate with each other increases the likelihood of a serious accident. Onsite safety officers or managers should instil in their personnel a desire to be aware of their surroundings always. Complacency during loading or unloading can easily set in. Training your drivers and mobile plant operators to stay focused and remain inquisitive of what is happening during loading and unloading can help avoid LUEZ incidents.
