|Truck overhead fill pipe installation
|The task being undertaken at this plant was to fill the readymix trucks’ header tanks with water. When the drivers were filling the header tank, the hoses were often being left on the ground where they could get damaged by vehicles driving over them.
This could lead to two problems:
- The discarded hose could pose a slip, trips and falls hazard; and
- Damaged connectors could cause water to be blown out under high pressure.
These dangers were removed by positioning a hanging pipe at the fill point. The pipes are kept cleaner and are easier for drivers to use.
