TITLE
Safe method of waste removal
ARTICLE
Waste blocks needed to be removed from the production plant. Traditionally this had been undertaken using dumpers. However, there was a health and safety issue because the dumper had no safety belt or roll over protection. For this reason the practice was stopped.

A skip for use with a fork lift truck was introduced but issues with skip stability were raised. Therefore, a purpose built skip was designed. Instructions on how to use the skip safely are clearly displayed on the side of the skip.
