Preventing vehicle tip overs
ARTICLE

DESCRIPTION

CEMEX’s grinding plant is located on the wharf at Tilbury docks, the site is exposed to strong south-westerly winds. A number of articulated tippers have been blown over as they were delivering raw material on the ramps into the apron belt feeders.

To prevent the possibility of this happening again, a covered tip over frame has been constructed. Vehicles now reverse into the fully covered frame and before they off-load into the safe tipping area. It is now impossible for vehicles to tip over regardless of weather conditions, mechanical failures such as a ram collapse or a tyre puncture.

BENEFITS

  • Eliminated risk of tip over
  • Reduced risk of injury to drivers and pedestrians on-site
  • Reduced potential for environmental pollution from dust
  • Potential to apply design in similar situations
  • Safer environment for all.
