9 steps to safe bitumen deliveries

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.

  1. Apply general safety awareness - Observe, think and act
  2. Always use the required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  3. Be aware of the emergency equipment locations (fire extinguishers, emergency stop buttons, safety showers, main closure valve)
  4. Ensure all personnel are kept at least 6 m away from the delivery operation (exclusion zone)
  5. Driver must stay in attendance at the emergency stop button at all times during delivery
  6. Check and secure any valves, caps, covers and padlocks
  7. Leave the delivery point in a clean condition
  8. Sign and complete delivery documentation
  9. Report all defects or any problems firstly to the customer, secondly to your Nynas contact.
Sustainable Development

Effective solution for reduced maintenance

All municipalities have at least one section of road that constantly requires maintenance, surfaces that can never be satisfactorily repaired and are always on the waiting list for new measures. One such example is the junction of Pilsworth Road and Moss Hall Road in the English town of Rochdale.
