TITLE
Removal of keys from mobile plant
ARTICLE
Following a fatal incident where an unqualified individual attempted to move a heavy vehicle, the team at this works decided to implement a simple control system to prevent operators leaving their keys in mobile plant.

The company purchased a batch of plastic covered key chains which were then attached to the belt or loop of the operators’ trousers, and fed through the pocket opening of the overalls. At the end of the shift, the key chains are removed and stored in the key safe.

Tarmac North West addressed this issue in a similar way. In addition, the company installed a secure key box which was wall-mounted in the depot supervisor’s office.
