AWWA-64289 Safety First: Pipe Handling Safety for Field Crews


This video shows employees how to avoid injuries when handling heavy water pipe. (15 minutes)

Injuries can occur when workers are moving heavy water distribution system components - pipe, fire hydrants, pumps, valves, etc. Not only are the individual parts potentially dangerous, so is the heavy equipment used to move these materials. 
Teaching workers how to avoid injury by using proper safety procedures is paramount especially for loading, unloading, and installing pipe with heavy equipment, including front loaders and cranes.
