|The safety team identified a risk of slips, trips and falls caused by drivers and plant supervisors not
re-hanging water hoses used to fill up ready-mix trucks after use.
Firstly, the company introduced bungees on each hose so that, once removed, the hose is gently pulled up into the air and out of harm’s way.
Whilst this solution worked successfully, the bungee ropes proved not to be very long lasting.
In response, the west London cluster also introduced retractable hoses which were more durable and have been introduced throughout the southern region.
