Safety in the workplace is important, whether in an office or on a construction site. Those who work with heavy materials and waste are especially susceptible to multiple types of injuries, so setting up and maintaining secure working conditions is vital. Putting safety first protects health and the long-term success of company operations. An integral factor in keeping a work area hazard-free involves training. This is why Roura Material Handling has created a series of material handling training videos.
We manufacture all of our self-dumping hopper models, including customized orders, with safety in mind. However, your employees need to know how best to use and empty our hoppers to take advantage of all the safety mechanisms built into them. We decided to create a series of operational videos to introduce our hoppers’ many safety features so your employees can take full advantage of the innovative designs.
