A-Safe provide a tailor-made solution for SCA Hygiene Products

11 March 2010

A-Safe products are playing a vital role in protecting employees at SCA Hygiene Products – one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of tissues and other hygiene-related products. The Halifax-based company has installed its safety barriers to act as part of a fall protection system in SCA’s parent roll warehouse at its busy Flint site.

The company have already successfully used A-Safe products in other parts of the site, prompting their decision to choose the safety barriers for this particular application in the HGV loading bay of their 1200m sq warehouse. The barriers now play a vital safety role in the area’s day-to-day operations, as they protect the three members of staff who work in this section against falls from a considerable height.

Simon Hobson, Site Safety Leader, comments: "The problem we had was particular to this area and required a tailor-made product. Basically, we needed to cut out the potential hazard of employees falling into the pit next to the loading bay area, but permanent barriers would have been impractical, because the personnel needed free access to do their jobs. A-Safe provided the answer by specially designing the barriers in removable sections, so a specific barrier can be moved out of the way, when the wagons move into position to be loaded or unloaded. The perfect solution!"
