|Convex mirrors to check hopper bins
|The plant needed to change the materials in hopper bins on a regular basis to accommodate additional constituents to meet the demand for Value Added Products.
Previously this had been achieved by emptying the bins into a site vehicle before refilling them with the new material.
Concerns were raised that a ladder needed to be used to check that the bins were empty as there was no other means of access or Egress. It was felt that this was not an acceptable means of access.
To rectify this, convex mirrors were fitted on a scaffold pole above the bins. Now the plant supervisor can check the bins from his Batch cabin, without needing to go into the operational area.
