Line of Sight

When operating around machinery, whether you are in the cab or on the ground, line of sight should be top of mind. An operator with good line of sight with workers on the ground can prevent serious bodily injury. When walking around a working piece of machinery, always maintain good eye contact with the operator and be constantly thinking of where you are in relation to the machine. Here are 5 things to be constantly thinking about, can you think of anymore?

  • Where do I stand?
  • Do I have eye contact and communication with the operator
  • How does the machine work
  • Where are the no-go zones

If you don’t have one of these answers, do not enter the work site!!
