It is extremely important that the driver always makes sure that the tank is free of water or aqueous products before loading bitumen.
It is an overarching objective for Nynas to minimise the impact of its products on health, safety and the environment. Playing a key role in this work is Product HSE.
‘Get home safely’ was the subject of this autumn's Aggregate Industries Safety Events.
As traffic volumes increase, efforts are required in order to improve the work environment of road workers.
Nynas is the first supplier in Estonia to carry out safety reviews at customers’ unloading sites. Indrek Tepp, Nynas Sales Manager and General Director in Estonia, explains.
Bitumen is handled at elevated temperatures. There are many important precautions that need to be taken to minimise the risk of burn injuries.
Nynas visits an asphalt plant operated by NCC, a construction company in the Nordic region, to assess its safe handling of bitumen.
Bitumen is delivered hot and therefore precise procedures are needed in order to minimise safety risks such as burn injuries. Safety is something on which the transport company Kördel maintains a constant focus.
In order for all employees to go home from work every day without injuries, each individual must assume personal responsibility. Bitumen Matters visited the Special Products Plant (SPP) at the Nynas refinery in Eastham.
To achieve the goal of zero injuries at work, every single person must assume personal responsibility for safety. We have compiled the most important points below.
