TITLE  
Asphalt discharge signage
ARTICLE
The installation of signage and lights at the weighbridge of this asphalt plant has cut the risk of an incident as hauliers load their vehicles. In the past, there was a danger of the driver being incorrectly positioned as the hot material is discharged from the overhead storage bins.

Two red lights indicate which bin is activated. The bin lane and number is shown. This corresponds to earlier signs and also to information given to the driver over the loudspeaker system. Further signs showing PPE requirements and other safety information are erected at a height and location where the driver can easily view them from the cab window.
