On Tuesday 17th August newly elected HAE EHA Chair, Neil Bravery, led the latest Digger and Dumper Safety Working Group Meeting. The session ran as a hybrid meeting, with HAE EHA's CEO Paul Gaze, and Director of Customer Services and Products, Simon Rainer, joining Neil at the offices in Solihull, with other members participating online.
Attendees came from a range of hire organisations, manufacturers and suppliers, alongside representation from the Health and Safety Executive. The Group seeks to showcase the wide range of digger and dumper types available within the sector and ensure that whatever brand is hired, end users benefit from key information and guidance on safe practices.
As part of this project the group discussed a communications and awareness plan which will include two short videos, the scripts for which formed part of the discussions. The two videos will be filmed at a construction site in September, with the plan to launch the first versions in October.
More information and updates, including minutes from the Digger and Dumper Safety Working Group will be made available on the HAE EHA website soon. If you would like to find out more or join the working group, please contact Paul Gaze on 0121 380 4609.
