Civil Training

Perfect Hire recently held our first Civil Training day for some of our new and existing team members. We will be hosting regular training sessions for our new existing members to gain valuable experience and knowledge about the Civil industry.

Ran by one of our supervisors Tim Fitzgibbons who has over 10 years of experience in the Civil Industry our new existing members to gain valuable experience and knowledge about Civil works.

Starting out Tim went through the dangers of the industry. He also went through how important it is to remain switched on at all times as in the Civil Industry. You are working around big heavy machinery most of the time. So, you must remain focused and aware of the dangers around you.

Our team members were shown what happens if the hydraulics fail on a quick release attachment fails and drop the bucket. Tim cleverly demonstrated this using a melon (Shown in the image above) showing what damage a 150kg – 250kg bucket can do to you.

Next, our team members were shown how to use the laser level to get to the depths of trenches. Also, how to communicate with an Excavator Operator. As well as this, Tim went through how to work around an Excavator and the importance of remaining focused when working around such a powerful machine.

Once we went through the Laser level and the dangers of the swing area of an excavator. Tim then got the level he was looking for and then showed our team members how to use the Wacker Neuson Jumping Jack to compact the bottom of a trench.

Tim also went through the safe and correct use of our Wacker Neuson Plate Compactor and the different applications for both of them.

Firstly, everyone had used both compactors. Then, Tim moved on to our Husqvarna Demolition Saws and showed our team members how to start them. He also showed how to safely operate them, and the dangers of the demolition saws.

Everyone had successfully started and cut with the Husqvarna Demolition Saw. Then Tim moved on to our large Hilti TE3000 Jackhammer and how to use it safely and the proper techniques to make their hammering more efficient.
