Cylinder pallet for transporting gas bottles around site with forks, has a burns kit and storage for welding goggles and welding gloves
An observation was put in to the Site Manager that the method of transporting gas bottles around a construction site was not suitable as the ground was not flat but uneven.
It benefitted the company as it reduced manual handling and it allowed the safe transport of gas bottles using the cylinder pallet. We are also able to transport with the pallet First Aid Equipment, Fire Fighting Equipment and Additional PPE required for welding etc. The pallets are cheap to purchase and cost in the region of just under £600.
This relates to the scheme as it improves the safety of construction workers and reduces the manual handling impact. Operatives used to pull the old gas trolleys along by the handle.
Jason Lusher, National Grid Interface Engineer commented on this initiative saying:
“Very impressive piece of kit and I really like the fact that Fire Fighting Equipment, First Aid Equipment and additional PPE is also transported with the gas bottles”.
