TITLE
Mobile asphalt sheeting bay
ARTICLE
Following a review of working at height activities at Baston, it was noted that several customers were standing on the back of their pickup trucks to sheet their asphalt loads.

When questioned, they stated that the lorry sheeting bays were not adequate and posed a risk to their safety.

It was clear that, despite the variety of sheeting arrangements available on site, there was nothing suitable for smaller vehicles.

It was decided that a mobile, low level sheeting bay that could adapt to various vehicle sizes was needed. The result is a simple and safe solution to a potentially hazardous situation.
