Safety Guidelines

To help ensure the safest operation possible, incorporate ALL of these equipment safety guidelines into your jobsite routine.

For questions or to report an incident, email us at DWsafety@ditchwitch.com.

Trenchless
Whether your trenchless installation job requires a horizontal directional drill, pipe-bursting equipment, rod pushers, or piercing tools, you should first thoroughly inspect your equipment even before you leave for the jobsite.
Trenchers
Before your trencher chains first hit the dirt, thoroughly examine your trencher’s engine, hydraulics, belts, and tracks. Also be sure to survey and visually inspect the jobsite and, of course, place a call to the national 811 service.
Vacs
Ditch Witch vacs not only have their own safety requirements, but are an important part of the most critical safety precautions of any utility installation: potholing.
Stand-On Skid Steers
No matter their size, Mini Skid Steers still require every safety precaution demanded by the largest underground construction equipment. This includes wearing a hard hat, gloves, ear protection, and other forms of PPE.
