6. WHAT IS HEAVY
• Heavy equipment is machinery that can do heavy-duty work. The equipment itself
comprises numerous sizes. Heavy equipment performs large operations, such as
• These machines are commonly used to move earth and other large materials, but they
are also frequently used to drill, lift, grade, suction, pave and compact.
8. WHAT ARE THE STANDARD HEAVY
EQUIPMENT SAFETY FEATURES?
• All heavy equipment comes with standard safety features designed
to protect the operator, the equipment itself, the facility and
materials around it, and any other operators or pedestrians in
the vicinity. This is particularly important due to the sheer
size and power of heavy equipment.
• Standard safety features built into most heavy equipment include
brake lights, turn signals and LED lights. Brake lights and turn
signals indicate the presence and intended direction of the
truck to pedestrians and other operators, which prevents
collisions and accidents. LED lights allow operators to maneuver
in low-light situations, a feature that is especially important
in work environments that operate overnight such as ports. Most
heavy equipment also comes equipped with fire extinguishers in
9. WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF ADVANCED
HEAVY EQUIPMENT SAFETY FEATURES?
• Other safety features are typically considered add-ons and come at an extra
initial cost or must be purchased aftermarket. Some examples include rear
view cameras, load-sensing technology with lift interrupt, and speed
control systems that help prevent tip overs. These advanced safety features
are offered by most manufacturers as an add-on that can be installed before
delivery. Additional features such as pedestrian awareness sensors and fire
suppression systems are offered by some manufacturers, but often must be
purchased and installed after the equipment has been received.
• Rearview Cameras
• Safety Start/Stop Engine Control
• Load-sensing Technology with Lift Interrupt
• Ground Speed Contro
• Stability Systems with Rollover Protection
10. WHAT IS THE CORPORATION SOCIAL
1. Enhancing quality of life: Providing products, technologies and services
that equip society to grow and enhance global environmental conservation.
2. Developing people: Supplying educational, workforce development
opportunities within our business as well as in our communities.
3. Growing with society: Supporting organizations that deliver essential
human services by working to decrease poverty, hunger and homelessness.
11. TALK ABOUT ENVIROMNET
IMPACT IN THE LAST YEARS.
• Our planet has changed a lot in the past 20 years, and that's not a good
• Since world leaders first met to discuss climate change two decades ago,
Earth has gotten hotter, more filled with heat-trapping gases and more
• Global temperature has risen six-tenths of a degree in those 20 years.
Population has increased by 1.7 billion people. Sea levels have risen 3
inches and extreme weather in the U.S. has increased by 30 percent. In
Greenland and Antarctica, ice sheets have lost 4.9 trillion tons of ice.
• Temperature It's almost a sure thing that 2014 will go down as the hottest
year in 135 years of record keeping, meteorologists at NOAA's National
Climatic Data Center say. If so, this will be the sixth time since 1992
that the world set or tied a new annual record for the warmest year
12. • On LandThe world's population in 1992 was 5.46 billion. Today, it's nearly a third
higher, at 7.18 billion. That means more carbon pollution and more people who could
be vulnerable to global warming.
• The effects of climate change can be seen in harsher fire seasons. Wildfires in the
western United States burned an average of 2.7 million acres each year between 1983
and 1992; now that's up to 7.3 million acres from 1994 to 2013, according to the
National Interagency Fire Center.
• The AirScientists simply point to greenhouse gas emissions, mostly carbon dioxide,
that form a heat-trapping blanket in our air.
• There's no need to average the yearly amount of carbon dioxide pollution: It has
increased steadily, by 60 percent, from 1992 to 2013. In 1992, the world spewed 24.9
billion tons of carbon dioxide; now it is 39.8 billion, according to the Global Carbon
Project, an international consortium.
