|New access hatches within the hot stone bins reduce risks
The asphalt plant had a top access door to each of its seven hot stone bins. Maintenance work within the bins was difficult because of the restrictive work area and single access route.
A series of inter-connecting access hatches was created within each hot stone bin wall so that maintenance crews could access a bin from both sides. In addition, if they need to work in any other bin, they can now easily do so, without having to repeatedly climb in and out of the top access door.
Improved working environment
Reduced risk of falls and working in confined spaces
Significantly improved emergency evacuation procedures.
