Working closely with one of our customers in the chemical industries, we set up a pilot study to improve the safety around manholes in shutdowns.
One of the conclusions of this study is that the lack of a clear marker for open manholes is a potential hazard.
The absence of a marker means workers must be in close contact with the tanks, resulting in personal accidents due to the nitrogen, toxic substances and/or moving parts.
By using a simple sign, which is easy to attach to the flange, accidents are virtually eliminated. The sign has an elastic cord which makes it suitable for mounting on all common flanges of manholes.
Furthermore, the signs:
- Can be supplied with specified text
- Are light-weight and small, so easy to take from location to location
- Are inexpensive (from €17.50 to €27.50)
- Can be attached to all other items to protect areas.
