When Oasis Foods was considering costly infrastructure changes to segregate walkways and?traffic routes, it turned to A-SAFE for a better solution.

CUSTOMER

Part of Creative Foods Europe, Oasis Foods is a leader within the expanding food service industry.

SITUATION

Oasis Foods was considering costly infrastructure changes within its warehouse to create a clear segregation between fork lift trucks and?pedestrian walkways. It was also looking to protect its workforce from topple hazards by designating a separate area for the storage ofstacked bulk items. After visiting the A-SAFE stand at the Safety &?Health Expo, the company had been impressed by both the quality and?reputation of A-SAFE barriers. Therefore, when it was looking for a robust solution to its latest site safety requirements, it turned to A-SAFE for help and?requested a site survey.

SOLUTION

PAS 13 compliant barriers were specially selected to suit the needs of each area within the facility.  These included a high-level barrier to shield people and property from the dangers of toppling stacked bulk goods, as well as an enclosed walkway for pedestrians. Inward-opening swing gates were incorporated into the walkway barriers at crossing points to create a pause effect and?encourage pedestrians to check for traffic before stepping out. Oasis Foods has since confirmed a significant reduction in near-accidents, as well as improved regulation of vehicle and?pedestrian movements around its site.
