TITLE
Permanent jump-start connectors
ARTICLE
Management at Venn Quarry, (Aggregate Industries, at Barnstaple, Devon) has addressed the risks associated with conventional jump-starting by requiring the installation of permanent jump-start connectors on all mobile plant. These connectors are permanently wired to the vehicle batteries with heavy-duty battery cable, terminating in a socket (easily accessible from the ground) into which the “plug” can only be inserted with the correct polarity. Risks of battery explosion are thereby greatly reduced, as is the risk of severe damage to the vehicles’ electrics.
