COLUMBIA, Mo. — EquipmentShare, one of the fastest-growing equipment rental and technology companies in the nation, has released a white paper for construction equipment professionals titled “The Safety-First Equipment Yard,” describing company and industry best practices for designing, organizing and operating equipment yards in a safe manner.
Construction industry employees account for 20% of all worker fatalities every year, according to OSHA. Equipment yards are not immune from the risks associated with the industry, even if they are miles away from the jobsite. EquipmentShare believes that promoting a safety-first culture that begins at the yard may help prevent future accidents.
The white paper details best safety practices for equipment yards and storage facilities in three main phases — initial yard design, equipment organization on the yard and safe equipment yard operation. It is available for free on our website, equipmentshare.com.
“The Safety-First Equipment Yard” is the latest effort by EquipmentShare to contribute to industry safety best practices. In June, the company unveiled its Seven Seconds of Safety initiative to promote safety awareness in the workplace.
