Challenges

  • Immediate action was needed upon survey but was late so night was coming on very rapidly, decreasing visibility
  • Getting articulated lorry to drop off skyjack due to tight turning circles, it was very import to get this handled in a timely matter
  • We had to break out the broken toughened glass and all the residue without injuring anyone or any object below

 

Solutions

 

  • We successfully put together RAMS, labour and got a MEWP to site same evening to remove the shattered skin to prevent it potentially falling
  • We temporillary closed a road while a banksman guided the driver
  • Ensured full ppe was worn and also expanded the safe exclusion zone below the path off the glass removal
