Toolbox Talk

  • In response to employee concerns regarding pneumatic 'Safety Bars' not being used in 'Joloda' roller vans. McPherson Ltd has now retro fitted a visual indicator on the pendant control storage box. The purpose of this visual indicator is to alert persons before opening the door, if the pneumatic 'Safety Bar' is in place or not. If the visual indicator is showing 'Green' the safety bar is in place. However if the visual indicator is 'Black' then the pneumatic 'Safety Bar' has not been put in place, extra care must be taken when opening the doors.

  • The purpose of the pneumatic 'Safety Bar' is to provide support for the palletised barrels being transported and prevent a load becoming unstable then falling onto a driver when the doors are opened. It is vitally important that drivers check before opening the rear doors to a 'Joloda' roller van. The pneumatic 'Safety Bar' provides strength to the body of the roller van therefore it should be used when loaded and when empty.

  • The pneumatic 'Safety Bar' in place does not garrantee that the load is secure, therefore drivers must still use the 'Safety Chain' installed on all trailers as an additional safety measure.

  • Is the pneumatic 'Safety Bar' in place if the visual indicator is showing Black?

  • If the 'Joloda' roller van is empty do need to put the pneumatic 'Safety Bar' in place?
