Earth moving involves the processing of natural materials forming the surface of the earth, usually with complex forms of heavy machinery. Examples of earth moving equipment include backhoes, graders, bulldozers, dragline excavators and dump trucks. The purposes of earth moving are varied, including the building of roads, railway lines, dams, canals and trenches. Due to the inherent dangers around use of such machinery, ergonomists are often required to assess safety and efficiency concerns.
