Installation of JetBlack Safety Cleaning Stations satisfies the demand at Lafarge Cement…

THE PROBLEM

Lafarge Cauldon cement plant is one of the largest cement manufacturing sites in the UK producing 1.3 Million Tonnes of cement every year. The workforce often comes into contact with dust that settles on the overalls, requiring the overalls to be cleaned more frequently. Currently Lafarge do not have any means of cleaning onsite apart from using compressed air. Compressed air is readily available, but it can cause air to enter the bloodstream and this, in extreme circumstances, can be fatal. During one of their monthly safety meetings, Lafarge identified a need for an alternative and safe practice.

THE SOLUTION

To help reduce the problem of having dust transferred to the offices and to keep employees clean, Lafarge chose to install a number of JetBlack Safety Wall Mounted Cleaning Stations on a 30-second timer. The units are located at the entrance which allows employees to de-dust themselves whenever required as well as before entering the building.

Installation of the Cleaning Stations has reduced the amount of dust entering buildings and is a safer alternative to compressed air. It has also been used to clean equipment, bags and tools. A 30-second timer is installed which has an added benefit of saving power when the device is not in use.

The JetBlack Safety Cleaning Station uses low pressure air to remove dust. This is a safer way to keep relatively clean without the added risk of using compressed air. The Cleaning Stations are simple to use and have a 1.5m hose to allow all areas of the overalls to be cleaned.
