Safety-First Machine Removal
Before a piece of machinery can be moved, regardless of the size, it, and the area around it, needs to be properly prepared. The machine needs to be drained of oil and fluids and disconnected from utilities.
Any rubbish that has built up under the machine including chips of wood or swarf needs to be cleaned away and the route the machine will travel must be cleared of obstructions.
It is important to ensure it is not still connected to power, water, gas or air before TFM arrive to move the machine using our trained and qualified staff. Emptying the machine of fluids is essential, a small amount of spilt oil will make a lot of mess and can be dangerous.
TFM will work to its standard Generic risk assessment during all machinery removals. We will also complete, before every move, a Point of Work risk assessment. These are always unique to every move to ensure both our staff and your property stays safe. We also ask that you clear any of your staff from the immediate working area.
