TITLE  
Entry into asphalt dryer plant
ARTICLE
A new access platform, walkway, staircase and entry door have lead to significant safety improvements for accessing the asphalt plant dryer.

The stairways, walkways and enlarged entry door allow improved access into the dryer.

Tools and equipment can be taken easily into the work area.

There is sufficient room for the person controlling the entry to stand immediately to the side of the door allowing direct sight of and good communication with the person inside.

Should an emergency arise, action can be speedy and safe without fear of falling from the platform.

There is sufficient room for emergency equipment to be set up if required
