Cleanliness is an essential component to crafting a successful safety culture.
In the current public health environment, it is also the subject of numerous conversations and the emphasis of new protocols across industries – and the world. At United Rentals, safety is entrenched in the culture and the additional precautions on top of those foundational operating principles help ensure our teams and customers can continue to operate safely.
A safe equipment shop follows a set of standard principles. The foundational safety best practices that have been instituted regularly, even before COVID-19, are what we continue to encourage and emphasize.
As companies look to rent equipment to address their worksite needs, they need to have confidence the equipment rental provider adheres to best practices for disinfecting equipment touch points.
The starting point includes operations that allow for and adhere to social distancing guidelines. Next, while personal protective equipment (PPE) has long been recognized as essential to a safe work environment, current conditions have led to rental companies providing additional gear to protect from health hazards, such as masks and gloves.
