TITLE
Bitumen emergency procedure
ARTICLE
An emergency procedure for bitumen burns has been implemented at this Southampton depot. When a member of staff pulls the cord to activate the emergency water shower, others are alerted by a green flashing beacon above the shower and a beacon and alarm in the mixer cabin. They can then initiate an emergency response using the telephone numbers and use advice on treating bitumen burns clearly displayed nearby.
