Backhoe Safety and Operations

Backhoe Safety and Operations (8 min.) Backhoes are one of the most common types of construction equipment found today and rightly so, as their versatility and maneuverability makes the backhoe the equipment of choice for most construction jobs. Backhoe loaders can dig, scrape, load material, lift and with specialized attachments, do almost any required task. No one should operate a backhoe unless specially trained and authorized by the company. Backhoe operators need a few items for personal safety; safety shoes, hard hats, safety glasses, heavy gloves, hearing protection, and quite possibly a respirator where necessary.
