                        Info and tips for excavator risk assessments

                        When we complete a hydraulic excavator risk assessment using Plant Assessor, the first thing we need to do is to enter the make and model of the machine, and its unique identifier (serial number). The best place to start is by locating the manufacturer’s machine identification plate.

                        ‌For most excavators, the manufacturers identification plate is on the outside of the operator platform/cabin adjacent the boom connection point. The serial number is generally on the plate, however if not, it will be stamped on the chassis in this area. Sometimes you will need to wipe off grease or dirt to see it.

                        Next, you will need to identify and select the machine’s features and attachments. This is a simple check box process in Plant Assessor. Once that is complete, it is time to consider the specific controls required to manage the hazards and risks on your machine.

                        Plant Assessor walks you through consideration of various “families” of controls specific to the machine you are inspecting. The questions are grouped logically, which helps streamline the inspection process.

                        Whilst this is not a comprehensive list of issues requiring attention when conducting a hydraulic excavator risk assessment, it covers many of the higher risk issues.

                        A Plant Assessor hydraulic excavator risk assessment covers a huge range of makes and models including:
