SPRINGBELT as their preferred operator restraint and asks machinery suppliers to quote for new plant fitted with SPRINGBELT Fulton Hogan’s Professional Plant Engineer Graham Eaton writes to a hire plant supplier:
As the preferred hire equipment supplier to Fulton it is important that you understand our plant need and objectives.
For the last 3 years I have been demanding and driving a change to Springbelt seatbelts across the board on construction equipment to force our operators to wear seatbelts. Unfortunately it is not just enough to fit a belt and hope they wear it in today’s OSH environment. We have had a few instances where these belts have saved our people and I have no problem having our plant suppliers change the OEM belts for this belt at an additional cost of $300 – $400.
With confidence, I know, where we have a Springbelt fitted, the operator is wearing the seatbelt.
To ensure your hire fleet align with our needs I ask that you seriously consider this device on your fleet, thus ensuring seamless integration with our fleet.
