Balfour Beatty office staff in Sheffield were recently treated to a visit from Lynch Plant Hire personnel with a heavy excavator and simulator in tow!
The objective of this particular visit was to ensure the office staff were given a good understanding of the Lynch product offering as well as an explanation of all the safety features installed on the machine, especially the 360 camera + height and slew restrictors. This was followed up with a briefing on the Lynch "Thumbs Up" campaign which was extremely beneficial to all concerned. Last and not least was the simulator experience and this really helped to drive home the importance of being aware of your surroundings when operating such a machine and simply how challenging the job can be.
A great day was had by all and it was a strong commitment from Balfour to engage with Lynch in raising awareness of plant equipment to office staff, who generally don’t get to see the equipment first hand. By having a machine present, they were able to understand the product better and improve their knowledge base.
