On a construction work site, safety should be of utmost importance. Motor graders, like any heavy equipment, carry inherent risk during operation. Improper use can quickly lead to injury or even death for the operator or construction workers in the vicinity.
Following our motor grader safety tips will help protect both workers and operators on the work site. As an added bonus, it will also prevent damage to your motor grader.
Operator safety generally applies to measures taken in the cab of the grader. There are many ways that the operator can reduce any risk to themselves while the motor grader is in operation.

Once started, check for any warning lights and listen for any unusual sounds
Make sure your view out the windows is not obstructed
Clear the cab floor of any debris
Never allow anyone in the cab with you while the machine is in operation
While the motor grader is running, moving and grading, these tips will help prevent accidents that could endanger the life of the operator and other workers.
Avoid turning the grader on a slope
Reduce speed on rough terrain
Watch for any dangers overhead
Maintain a slow and steady speed at all times
Keep the grader in gear when going down a hill
