Earthmoving is the process of removing, moving, or adding soil or rocks from one place to another for engineering projects. Here are some of the most common projects that use earthmoving for their construction:
After the earthmoving process, land grading is completed to reconfigure the land topography. It is also done to stabilise the slopes within the property. In the process of earthmoving and land grading, trained personnel operate heavy construction equipment. Therefore, earthmoving requires both the skill and experience of the operators and the quality of the machinery involved.
Previously, earthmovers in Australia must necessarily have a license before being allowed to perform work. But with the government’s Work Health & Safety Act, it is now easier to get earthmoving jobs and operate heavy equipment in the country.
However, while a license is no longer needed, it is still important that earthmovers are qualified and competent enough for the job. As such, earthmoving personnel are still highly encouraged to undergo courses and obtain certifications for the job.
The Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU) is in charge of ensuring that the operators are competent enough to handle site machinery and situations. At Solmer Civil, all personnel operating heavy machinery have received training and certifications for their jobs.
Solmer Civil also does its own training for its personnel. Our clients can rest assured that the people working on their projects have the necessary competencies to fulfil their duties.
