In a concrete batching plant it is essential that workers and visitors are not exposed to hazards arising from a lack of adequate safety barriers. Plant owners must take action to eliminate or minimise the risk of accidents that occur onsite.
Verge wants to help you to keep your concrete batching plant running smoothly and safely. We have an extensive range of suitable safety barriers for concrete batching plants to keep your workers safe and maximise plant efficiency all whilst keeping your plant compliant with Australian safety regulations.
Why Concrete Batching Plants Need Safety Barriers
As a business owner or manager, you should be aware of what is happening within your plant and more importantly, if there are any avoidable safety threats. You can do this simply by walking around your workplace and identifying any areas that may pose a threat to workers.
Once you have weighed up the risks, you can now think about what safety measures you can put in place to minimise the risk of harm to workers. Concrete batching plants have high levels of traffic with vehicle fleets operating within the same zone as pedestrian workers, so it is essential to have safety barriers in place to ensure the safety of everyone.
Safety barriers keep workers at a safe distance from any areas where loading, storage, conveying and mixing of concrete may pose a significant risk to their health and safety, along with preventing access to unauthorised areas within the plant and separating pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
Our range of safety barriers includes forklift safety barriers, warehouse safety barriers, parking bollards and expandable barriers which can provide protection from hazards such as machinery or heavy stock.
