Lynch M23 Safety Training Day

reading time

Working with Kier Group on the prominent M23 Smart Motorway project, Lynch has been instrumental in developing safe behavior on site with over 200+ personnel trained to date.

The training day demonstrates all aspects of site safety including;

  • The advantages of the machine’s GKD height and slew restriction system when working beside moving traffic and under bridges or gantries.
  • The operation and importance of the brightly coloured ‘dead man’s lever’ beside the operator’s seat.
  • Ensuring the three points of contact are used to climb in and out of the machine cab.
  • Lynch’s ‘Thumbs Up’ initiative is increasingly being promoted as a good way to ensure that site workers only approach a machine when its operator has acknowledged their presence and made the equipment safe.
  • The day also highlighted the need to avoid underground cable strikes and at the end of each safety course, the risk of a cable strike is graphically brought home when pyrotechnics demonstrate, in a rather thought provoking manner, the noise and effect of such a strike.
