Heavy Equipment Safety Checklist

Safety cannot be emphasized enough when it comes to heavy equipment operation. A large part of heavy equipment operator safety is conducting a thorough inspection of the machine before you use it. While going through the pre-operation walk-around, be sure to keep the tasks on this heavy equipment safety checklist in mind. 

The best way to master the tasks on this safety checklist is to enroll in a heavy equipment training program like those of the Heavy Equipment Colleges of America (HEC).
