Properly working, well-maintained equipment is one of the most important factors in construction safety. That’s why it’s so important to stay on top of recall alerts. We’ve recently seen two such alerts issued on items that are used in the field every day: hard hats and ladders. These are for very specific items, but the manufacturers have done a fantastic job making it easy to find the information on the items to see if your hard hat or ladder is one of the recalled pieces. Please take a minute to look over the links to the documents to ensure that the equipment you’re using is safe.
Many times manufacturers learn about faulty or malfunctioning equipment and they will issue a notice which identifies the concern on specific makes and models of equipment.
Below are several notices that have recently been issued by Genie. It’s important to take the time to identify your equipment, and if matches the make and model listed in these notices, be vigilant about getting that equipment fixed before it causes harm to your employees or damage to your equipment.
