Kick the can was a game we played as kids. Kicking the bucket is a euphemism for dying. Front end loader work is not a game. Standing under the bucket is against the rules and a sure way to invite an accident. This poster is a creative way to help your front end loader operators understand the importance of loader safety and the seriousness of working in accordance with front end loader standards.
A front end loader (also called a bucket loader, front loader, front-end loader, payloader, scoop, shovel, skip loader, or wheel loader) is a heavy equipment machine, usually on rubber tires but sometimes on tracks, used in construction to move aside or load materials such as asphalt, demolition debris, dirt, snow, feed, gravel, logs, raw minerals, recycled material, rock, sand, woodchips, etc. Armed with an articulating steering component (or pivot point) and a high-capacity bucket, front end loaders are workhorses designed to get the job done. In addition to buckets, they are also often seen being used with forks, personnel work platforms, jibs, and other attachments. Virtually every construction site has a front end loader. And while they vary in size and by brand, their constant use and ability to move quickly make them as vulnerable to an accident as any other piece of heavy equipment, maybe even more so.
