3 Reasons Why You Should Hire an Operator

Hiring a machine for your plant? Why not hire an operator, too? Here’s a list of things that will help you understand why doing so is going to work to your advantage.

CPCS Certified Operators

When working with high-powered machinery, you cannot just hire anybody. It is important that the person manning it has obtained all the essential license and training. Specifically, you should be able to get someone who is a CPCS certified operator.

CPCS is short for Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS). There are two types of CPCS cards: the Red Trained Operator Card and the Blue Competent Operator Card.

These cards are certification given by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) to ensure that machine operators have the necessary skills and qualifications. It is a mandatory requirement for most plants operating in the United Kingdom to prove an operator’s code of conduct and expertise in the field.

Time and Energy Efficiency

Hiring a skilled operator with your machine rental almost guarantees that the job gets done smoother and faster. Having worked with it several times previously, the person is already considerably familiar with the equipment, as opposed to someone who will only handle it for the first time.

Fewer Chances of Breakdown and Malfunction

This is connected to the hired operator’s previous experience handling the rented machinery. Aside from being more knowledgeable about the capacity of the machine, there is a good chance that the operator is also aware of some troubleshooting techniques in unexpected instances where the rented machine fails. This saves you from the hassle of calling the company to complain and request for someone to come over and fix it.
