The company was asked to look at the delivery of a system of works which involved the safety of workers and contractors in working at height situations at a support facility for an automotive manufacturer in the area. The system and working practices deployed were being superseded following ongoing consultations with the business owners and contractors operational in the facility. DT Engineering NW were asked to suggest and design a working system which could help to allow the active production cell to be reached as part of ongoing maintenance procedures.
The system designed and installed by DT Engineering NW was that of safety lines and sliding anchor trolleys which were detachable which allowed for the maintenance teams to undertake tasks and inspections on top of the machine critical to its safe operation.
The project was sanctioned for rollout mid-2018, with the installation taking place later on in the year. The installation was a success and the standard now moving forward for other machine cells in the facility.
