Health & safety - Operational & site safety
Reversing & visability aids
Poor visibility from mobile plant has been a significant factor in many incidents, dangerous occurrences and near misses in the cement manufacturing industry.
MPA Cement has published Mobile Plant Reversing & Visibility Aids, which outlines minimum standards to be applied to all mobile plant operated by members of the association and their contractors.
The document concentrates on a relatively narrow set of health and safety criteria specific to visibility and reversing aids that should be considered as part of an overall risk assessment. Compliance with any guidance set out in this document does not absolve the user from his legal duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to form his own site-specific assessment of his workplaces and operations and to provide accordingly for such matters.
