Use the Correct Equipment for the Task
Never be tempted to use the wrong equipment for the job. Many accidents happen because people have not chosen the right equipment for the work to be done. Controlling the risk often means planning ahead and ensuring that suitable equipment or machinery is available. You should check the machinery is suitable for the work – think about how and where it will be used. Ensure that any required checks and maintenance have been carried out and that you are competent to use the equipment.
