TITLE
Skip Lock
ARTICLE
Staff at Dene Quarry noticed that even though there was signage on the approach to the site, unless a physical barrier was in place to prevent access, some drivers would still drive into the site.

In order to better control these contractors, staff targeted the ad hoc collections of skips by waste companies.

Two fitters placed a lock onto the skips so that even if the drivers ignored all of the signage, they would still have to report to a member of the quarry staff before they could attempt to load.

This gives quarry staff the time and opportunity to ensure the skip is correctly loaded and to ensure the driver follows the safe loading procedure.
