Health & Safety Review
West Yorkshire Trading Standards (WYTS) offer a road tanker calibration service for oil & petroleum tankers. They recently took over the management of the site which carries out the calibration. Following an operations Health and Safety review two main issues were highlighted. Firstly, an existing set of regularly operated heavy folding stairs, used to safely access tankers, were causing manual handing strain issues for the operator. Secondly, the method of safely accessing the tops of the road tankers was deemed unsafe. WYTS asked IFC Inflow to come up with a solution to both issues. The challenge was to come up with a solution to accommodate every conceivable size of tanker and provide safe access across the length of the tanker body, whilst also taking into account the sites height restrictions.
