|Anti-slip walkway around trucks
|The increased risk of a person slipping due to standing water around the mixer truck loading area was identified as a potential problem at concrete plants.
Although channels are in place to drain water from the area, ice can form in winter months as water takes time to drain away.
At a district SHE meeting, “Rocbinda”, a non-slip material which was being used on walkways, was discussed.
During August 2008, the product was trialled in the mixer truck loading area and it went on to withstand a particularly harsh winter.
There were no complaints or reported incidents of slips and “Rocbinda” has now been laid around the mixer truck loading area at other concrete plants.
