TITLE  
Splash guard for delivery flange
ARTICLE
Following an incident at Carnsew Quarry where a bitumen delivery driver caused a spillage, the safety team decided to design and manufacture a splash guard to fit over the delivery flange.

Two different prototypes were built by John Hudson, in consultation with Shell Bitumen’s delivery drivers. The preferred design included a hinged cover secured with a safety bar to allow the pipes to be easily connected. Once the pipes have been connected, the cover is lowered into place and locked by the safety bar. A “belt-and-braces” solution.
