Safe Operation of Plate Compactors
  • If the machine is rented, make sure operators understand controls
  • Check the area for debris and trip hazards before beginning work
  • Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for compacting uphill
  • If operating across a slope is unavoidable, steer toward the rise to reduce sideway slip
  • Avoid operation on compacted or unyielding surfaces
