Safety Meeting Solves Issue

Following a successful safety meeting with our two asphalt Sheffield operational gangs, a potential safety issue was raised with regards to manually loading our chipping machines on to the low loaders.

In order to eliminate any operator risk when loading, our fitters came up with the solution of adding an umbilical cord to the control panel.  This now enables us to load the machine using the control from a safe distance on ground level rather than having to drive it on.

This is a great example of how talking about safety creates a safer working environment.
