Safety day in Mansfield

Nynas were invited by Breedon Group to attend a safety day which was held at their site in Mansfield recently.

Staff attended from Breedon sites across the region and Nynas gave a presentation with a focus on safe bitumen handling.  Staff were shown how to shut down the tanker in the event of an incident and what action should be taken in the event of a spill or worse.  

A very enjoyable and informative event that we were happy to be involved in.
