AWWA-64286 Safety First: Heavy Equipment Yard Practices


This video covers safety procedures when moving and storing pipe, hydrants, and other heavy materials.

Almost every water and wastewater utility has a pipe yard containing pipe, fire hydrants, valves, and other heavy materials and equipment used every day. 
Safety must be stressed when employees are working around these potentially dangerous items, as well as around the forklifts and other equipment used to move them. Personal protection, lifting systems, chaining and slinging, storage, loading and unloading are covered in this program. (15 minutes)
