NFDC guide


The National Federation of Demolition Contractors has published its guidance for use of long-reach excavators above 15 m boom length.

The guide has been endorsed by the Health and Safety Executive. Particular attention has been paid to site responsibilities, especially site investigation and preparation, following several accidents due to platform collapse.
