The Strategic Forum Plant Safety Group are pleased to launch their latest work on a Good Practice Guide for the Safe Use of Dumpers. This guidance was borne out of an industry forum set up through a partnership of the Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) who took the initiative to tackle the increasing number of dumper incidents which were leading to untimely deaths.
