Our small equipment presentations include sections on identifying hazards, following policies and procedures, required equipment inspections, and emergency response strategies in case of an accident. These courses also provide the students with examples of real-life accident profiles, which will help them to better understand the potential hazards they work around. Each course comes with a practical evaluation and a corresponding checklist for the instructors to use when administering the exam.
Some examples of what would be considered small equipment include a chainsaw, hand and power tools, or a snowblower. Small equipment is any piece of equipment that has to be pushed or held.
Our small equipment training length varies depending on the course you choose to take. It generally takes anywhere for 2-3 hours.
Moving parts, noise, electrical dangers, and environmental factors are all common hazards that are related to working with small equipment.
