Creating a safer working environment

 

The Melbourne Gateway Facility is a purpose-built facility for the screening of domestic and international mail. The facility is operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is occupied by Australia Post, Australian Customs Services (ACS) and Australian Quarantine and Inspection Services (AQIS).

We were contacted at the very initial design stage by Gray Pucksand Architecture, to create a solution for the safe compounding of multi stacked ULD stillages, and pedestrian protection. Verge Safety Barriers, having the capacity to take on a design challenge, was very keen to propose some concepts to achieve the ultimate end result. Through this design challenge, the 5.5m high Hy-wall barrier was created.

The challenge:

  • To safely compound ULD stallage stacked 4-5 high and have a structure capable of withstanding an impact of 7 kms/hr, in addition to the ability to contain the ULD stillages in the event of them toppling.
  • To create safe walkways in a busy forklift environment.
  • To protect thoroughfare walls from forklift impact.

Potential incident outcome: Pedestrian injury or fatality.  Risk factor – Very High.
