TITLE
Safe handling advice for kerbs and pavers
ARTICLE
Description

Brett Landscaping reviewed the tools available to its customers for the handling of kerbs and pavers. Historically, Brett had supplied an in-house designed lifting device to customers but this was no longer suitable for all its product range.

Working with a leading materials handling manufacturer, Brett produced a guide book for installers. The guide emphasised the benefits and reduced risks from using the correct handling
procedures. It also identified which lifting device would be best for safely and efficiently handling each item in Brett’s product range. In addition, the guide also explained Brett’s in-house design
and cutting service where blocks are cut at the production site in a controlled environment minimising the risks from dust, vibration, manual handling and other potential hazards.

Benefits

• Reduced risk of customers incurring manual injuries when handling Brett’s products
• Customers’ awareness of potential hazards increased
• Positive feedback from customers
• Increased use of in-house service.
