Guidance on attachment use available

By Lindsay Gale02 July 2013

The NFDC has published another in its series of Guidance Notes for the industry that covers demolition attachments of all types. Prepared by a working party under the direction of the Federation’s president, the document is intended to ensure optimum safety for all persons using, maintaining or working within close proximity to machine mounted attachments. The Guide is aimed at those working with or having to visit or inspect demolition and refurbishment sites where these attachments are in use.

The document lays down general management procedures, training and operational requirements and then moves on to discuss the individual attachment types to be found on today’s demolition sites. Ten specific attachment types are covered, from shears through processors and breakers to crusher buckets and quick couplers. For further information, visit
