At EventQuip, safety is always our top priority. As part of our ongoing commitment to personal, property and equipment safety procedures, our crew leaders, installers and warehouse team gather to review the processes that keep them and others safe at work sites and in the warehouse. Our Operations Manager and Warehouse Manager lead the discussion to insure that everyone understands our personal and property safety guidelines. We also bring in safety experts to provide additional detailed information and training.
The meeting’s topics may include ladder safety, driving and backing up procedures, personal protective gear and emergency procedures.
Although it may not seem obvious, installing tents can be a dangerous proposition. The tent vinyl, poles and frames are very heavy. There are multiple parts and many people involved in a tent installation and removal. The area that a tent needs to be installed may be uneven, rocky or muddy. Nearby trees and tight areas may present an installation challenge. During the hot summer months, installers need to be sure to stay hydrated and protected in the sun. Crew members need to be focused and aware of their surroundings and keep their personal safety training in mind to avoid injury. Safety procedures must be followed while operating equipment including forklifts, loaders, truck and jackhammers.
We also take precautions and follow procedures to insure that we minimize the impact of the installation on our clients’ property. Our tents and equipment are installed with great care and respect for the grounds, buildings and other personal property that they are being installed near.
The safety of our employees and the protection of our clients’ property lies in our hands, and we make sure that our crew is properly trained to ensure that they know the procedures to stay safe on the job.
