TITLE
Skip track safety catch
ARTICLE
A potential hazard was identified at Peterborough Asphalt Plant. When the skip track was lifted to provide access under the mixer, it was only supported by the chain hoist and had no back-up safety catch.

A safety catch was fabricated and installed to act as a back-up should the hoist fail, preventing possible serious injuries.
