Bandit Tree Equipment is an industry leader in safety and consistently exceeds Australian Standards and international safety requirements and recommended practices. Every new Bandit machine supplied by us comes complete with the Bandit Operations and Maintenance Manuals, extensive Safety Documentation and Risk Assessment Documentation.
Each new machine owner will be trained using our exclusive Equipment Familiarisation Program which has been designed to provide customers and their operators with an introduction to their new equipment. This program covers key areas of machine operation including:
- the operator’s manual
- equipment components
- start-up/operating/shut down procedures
- maintenance procedures
- troubleshooting (diagnosis of minor issues which may occur during operation)
These guidelines are designed to minimise machine downtime and help you to maximise your return on investment. This program is designed to be presented to small groups to provide all participants with a clear view of the items being discussed and materials being processed.
Regardless of the time and effort invested by manufacturers to minimize risks, accidents can still happen. In nearly all cases, such accidents are due to operator error. Even the most established professionals who are accustomed to the equipment can make a mistake if they take safety precautions for granted. Your safety, and the safety of those working with you, depends on your knowledge of how to properly operate and maintain your equipment. NEVER take the equipment or safety procedures for granted.
These are some of the special safety features that are standard on all new Bandit hand-fed chippers. All safety features can also be retrofitted to older Bandit hand-fed chippers. Contact our Service Department regarding retro fitting any of these safety features to your older Bandit machine.
