How To Hire & Operate A Dumper Safely

Dumper hire is a great way to transport waste and materials around your property without investing in a machine yourself. If you’re interested in plant hire and want to know the best way to hire and operate your machinery safely, check out our useful guide.

Call Your Local Dumper Hire Company

First things first, get in touch with your local dumper hire company. At Dormer Plant Hire, we’ve got a wide selection of plant machinery available, including dumpers. We’ll be able to advise you on the perfect machine to suit your project and recommend any safety and operation tips and techniques to ensure everything gets completed safely.

Read The Owner’s Manual

Once your dumper is on hire, it’s a good idea to read the owner’s manual. Here, you will find a variety of operation instructions as well as safety features and maintenance requirements. It’s essential to educate yourself on these aspects of plant hire to ensure that nobody gets hurt, and nothing gets damaged.

Optional: Get Certified For Dumper Hire

Although it’s not a requirement for dumper operation, a certification in health and safety will be beneficial to ensure proper use. A qualification in this area will mean you’ll know exactly how to operate this kind of machinery in both private, and public scenarios. This will ensure that the job gets done efficiently, without any damage to property or people.

Practice Awareness

Awareness is the key to dumper hire safety. There are blind spots and hazards to be found on all sites and properties. What’s more, the dumper itself can make visibility difficult in tight situations. That’s why it’s crucial to be aware of your surroundings. Always check behind you, and around you when moving. Additionally, this aspect is most important regarding people and animals. Moving objects can be hard to anticipate. From a distance, you’ll be able to see static hazards such as parked cars, other machinery and buildings. However, moving vehicles, pedestrians and animals can move more erratically. Always keep an eye out for movement and anticipate how this could affect where you go and your speed.
