Safety hazards and preventive measures for used excavators

6 Views Nov 30,2023

In the field of construction engineering, excavators are an important engineering machinery and are widely used in earth excavation, road construction, underground pipeline laying, etc. However, as engineering demands continue to increase, the incidence of excavator safety accidents is also gradually increasing. Among them, used excavators are more likely to have safety hazards due to long-term use and wear. Juexiang Construction will introduce in detail the safety hazards of used excavators and propose corresponding preventive measures.

Potential safety hazards of used excavators
1.Mechanical aging:After a long period of use, the mechanical components and hydraulic system of used excavators have worn out and aged. This may lead to problems such as loss of control and reduced stability, leading to safety accidents.
2.Improper maintenance:There may be loopholes in the maintenance of used excavators. If the lubricating oil is not replaced in time, the hydraulic system is not cleaned, etc., it may lead to mechanical failure and safety hazards.
3.Irregular operation:The operation of used excavators requires certain skills and experience. If the operator's skills are insufficient or the operation is not standardized, such as standing under the excavator's digging arm, overloading, etc., safety accidents may occur.
4.Environmental factors:Operating excavators under harsh environmental conditions, such as rain, snow, high temperatures and other extreme weather conditions, may increase the risk of safety accidents. For example, operating an excavator in the rain can cause the excavator's wheels to slip or roll over.
5.Insufficient safety awareness:Insufficient safety awareness is one of the root causes of excavator safety accidents. If operators lack awareness and attention to safety and ignore safety regulations and operating procedures, the risk of safety accidents will increase. For example, operators who fail to wear seat belts or fail to place warning signs in accordance with regulations may lead to safety accidents.

Preventive measures for safety hazards of used excavators
1.Pre-purchase inspection:Before purchasing a used excavator, the machinery should be thoroughly inspected and maintained. Ensure the normal operation of mechanical components and hydraulic systems to avoid purchasing a used excavator with serious safety hazards.
2.Regular maintenance:After purchasing a used excavator, you should perform regular maintenance. Change the lubricating oil, clean the hydraulic system, check the engine and other key components to ensure the normal operation of the machinery and extend its service life.
3.Training and guidance:Operators should receive sufficient training and guidance and be familiar with the excavator's operating procedures and safety precautions. Improve operating skills and experience levels to avoid safety accidents caused by irregular operations.
4.Pay attention to environmental factors:When operating an excavator, you should pay attention to changes in environmental factors. Avoid operating the excavator under adverse environmental conditions. Operations should be suspended under extreme weather conditions such as rain, snow, high temperature, etc.
5.Strengthen safety management:Construction units should establish a strict safety management system and reward and punishment system to punish operators who violate safety regulations. Strengthen safety education and training to improve the safety awareness of operators.
6.Records and inspections:Establish maintenance records of the excavator and conduct regular follow-up inspections. Discover potential problems in a timely manner and take appropriate measures to avoid mechanical failures that may affect project progress and cause safety accidents.
7.Choose a reliable buyer:When purchasing a used excavator, you should choose a reliable buyer and a reputable dealer. Reduce safety risks by avoiding purchasing used excavators that have been illegally modified or repaired.
In short, to ensure the safe use of used excavators, comprehensive precautions need to be taken. From pre-purchase inspection to daily maintenance and standardized operations during use, to strengthening safety management, sufficient attention and management are required. Only in this way can the occurrence of used excavator safety accidents be effectively reduced and the smooth progress of project construction ensured.
