    This is taken out of the N.B. OHSA so we are supposed to wear hardhats. But different places have different rules and guidelines. When I was in Calgary last summer the paving crew that I worked with never wore hardhats, vests or work boots.




    40(1) On a project site, an employee shall use Class E, Type 1 headwear that conforms to ANSI standard ANSI Z89.1-1997, "American National Standard for Industrial Head Protection" or a standard offering equivalent or better protection.



    40(2) At a place of employment, other than a project site, where an employee is exposed to a hazard that may injure the employee's head, the employee shall use protective equipment that is appropriate to the hazard and that conforms to ANSI standard ANSI Z89.1-1997, "American National Standard for Industrial Head Protection" or a standard offering equivalent or better protection.

    Good pics!:thumbsup Thanks for sharing. European construction equipment is always interesting.

    Couple of questions-
    The dump trucks have metal covers over them. Are these used primarily to haul asphalt or is it the norm for dump trucks to have these covers. I have seen this type of metal covers on dump trucks in mainland China.

    Ditto on CB's question about the colors of the asphalt. That looks pretty neat.

    What is the wheeled excavator used for?

    So you guys don't like Vogele?:D

    Hey guy's:
    - The colour is for bicycles or walkers. We have the same in Norway, red asfalt on the sides on the carroads for bicycles. In Netherland the becycles is the major ones(most bicycles, not walkers), so the narrow stripe can be for walkers....
    - Normaly we have 2 sets of dumper bodys for the trucks that drive asphalt. One squere one for stones/gravel and such and a rounded isolated one for asphalt.
    The asphalt dumper has another type of tailgate and a metall or tarpoulin roof over it.
    It is very strict rules on the minimum temperature on the asphalt when it is delivered in the paver.
    Some drive asphalt in the squere on, then they have a detachable roof.

    Some lige vogele, others don't. German's and their products is not always popular. U know adolf's world tour some years ago.:(

    It is for the bicycles on roads with a speed limit ( 50/60 km/h )
    The metal covers on the trucks is for isolating the asphalt
    I got a link from a roadtec shuttle-buggy also working on the A 73 in the
    netherlands ( bad quality )
