12 Safety Tips for Excavator Daily Operation

  1. After the excavator is started, no one is allowed to stand in the bucket, on the boom, on the crawler and on the machine shed.
  2. The excavator shall be parked on a solid and flat ground to prevent rollover during operation.
  3. Each excavation should not be too deep. Do not lift the bucket too hard to avoid damaging the machinery or causing overturning accidents. When the bucket falls, be careful not to impact the track and frame.
  4. Workers who cooperate with the excavator in bottom cleaning, leveling and slope repair must work outside the turning radius of the excavator. Workers in different positions should take care of each other and cooperate closely to ensure safety.
  5. Workers and other equipment shall not stay within the loading range of the excavator. Prevent personnel or equipment from being injured by gangue spilling.
  6. When the excavator rotates, it needs the rotation clutch to cooperate with the rotation brake to rotate smoothly. Sharp rotation and emergency braking are prohibited.
  7. Before the bucket leaves the ground, it is not allowed to rotate or walk. When the bucket is fully loaded and suspended, do not lift and lower the boom and move.
  8. During backhoe operation, the soil must be shoveled after the boom stops stably to prevent the bucket handle and both sides of the boom groove from hitting each other.
  9. It is forbidden to repair, maintain and fasten the excavator during operation. In case of abnormal noise, peculiar smell and excessive temperature rise during work, stop the machine immediately for inspection.
  10. The excavator shall strictly obey the command during underground operation, but the excavator driver has the right to refuse to carry out any action that destroys the excavator or is unsafe.
  11. In case of failure of the excavator during operation, if the excavator driver cannot solve it by himself, he must report it to the excavator manager at the first time, so as not to delay the rush repair.
  12. During underground gas cutting or electric welding operations, the excavator must be covered with flame-retardant materials. In daily use, the excavator must be equipped with at least 2 bottles of dry powder fire extinguishers.
