As a major project in the construction industry, HS2 requires world-leading standards and quality. Striving to ensure HS2 uses the very best safety equipment available and leading the industry into a new era of construction.

Oxford Plastics StrongWall

The minimum requirement for Footway or Footpath closures, pedestrians or staff segregation and dedicated walkways.

All barriers MUST be of the same style and be in no other colour than red or white. All bases will preferably be yellow.

All barriers MUST use the displayed StrongWall style base and be connected through the entire barriered area.

Where extra security is required Heras style fencing can be used in conjunction with the standard StrongWall style barrier.

When fencing is added to the barriers all safety features including fence clamps MUST be used.

When Cheap Ain’t Cheerful: A Health & Safety Nightmare

 

In recent years the trench cover market has seen a rise in cheap composite trench covers. In many ways they look like a typical composite trench cover; they are plastic, yellow and have anti-skid on the surface. However it doesn’t take long for a cheap composite trench cover to look like a health & safety nightmare!

Oxford Plastics Trench Covers

 

This picture shows a Chinese trench cover that has cracked to reveal a gaping hole in the resident’s driveway. Lucky for this resident, someone quickly came along to replace the defective trench cover with a LowPro 15/10 Driveway Board

 

 

 

 

 

A cheap imitation is just that: an unsuitable mock-up of the original. Oxford composite covers are designed for purpose, like the LowPro 15/10 Driveway Board, or the 12/8 Safe Cover. We test our trench covers over and above the safety requirements to leave our customers feeling full of confidence, instead of full of dread!

 

Feel confident in your work site; be safe and be compliant with Oxford Plastic’s trench covers.
