TITLE  
Safer inflation of tyres
ARTICLE
A blow-out while inflating a tyre in the workshop at this Frome quarry led to prompt and decisive action by the safety representative and site management.

Following a review by the safety committee, a new tyre inflation bay was designed and built with a risk assessment and new safe system of work. The bay has a red flashing beacon which starts automatically when air is in the line, and is outlined by a red / white chain with a simple gate system, that removes the vehicle from any of the site’s traffic routes and prevents any vehicles from parking in or around the area.
