TITLE
Transfer of steel fibres into concrete plant
ARTICLE
The introduction of steel fibres into concrete at the mixing stage can be a strenuous and repetitive task. Tarmac Area 3 Concrete, at Gawsworth, near Macclesfield, has produced a safe system of work that includes the use of a forklift truck to move pallets to a 110 volt conveyor.

Manual handling of the bags was the subject of discussion with site personnel, with the outcome being an agreed frequency of work rotation.
