Safety Guidelines: Best Practices for Using Hydraulic Hammers on Job Sites
Operating large and sophisticated pieces of machinery like hydraulic hammers requires skillful operators and special attention to detail, not only to ensure that the equipment is used properly and is not broken but especially to keep everyone on the job site safe. Hydraulic hammers are incredibly powerful and dangerous, and if not used correctly, can easily be turned into a hazard. We’ve compiled a list of best practices when using hydraulic hammers that includes safety, operational, and strategy tips.
- Having complete control over the tool is crucial while using a breaker or hammer. It is best to operate the machine from the operator’s seat to do. In this position, the operator can see everything around him or her, including any potential dangers. Also, it enables the operator to precisely regulate the machine’s movements, which is essential when utilizing powerful tools like breakers and hammers.
- You must take safety precautions when using power tools like breakers or hammers so that you are shielded from flying debris. To protect your eyes from any flying particles that may be produced, you must wear protective eyewear and make sure the protective windscreen is closed.
- When the machine starts to act in an un-normal manner immediately stop and begin an inspection as there are many possibilities as to what could be going wrong. Some potential problems that your machine may be having could include a broken energy chamber, a seized tool, gaskets, and bearings being too worn or an inadequate amount of lubricant being applied to joints. These are just a few possibilities of potential issues but they are many more as a hydraulic Hammer is a complex piece of machinery that requires constant maintenance to preform ideally.
