Arriva takes extra steps to improve safety01 August 2011

Arriva has moved to improve safety in the workplace by introducing free-standing barriers and retractable wall-mounted units from Tensator.

As part of the deal, high-visibility retractable webbing barriers will be installed around vehicle inspection pits throughout Arriva's UK-wide bus depot network.

The safety barriers have been installed in accordance with the Health & Safety Executive's criteria in motor vehicle repairs and associated industries booklet, and carry messaging with accompanying visuals to alert people, which also helps to overcome any potential language difficulties.

"The safety of our employees is paramount and we strive to continually improve health and safety measures in our workshops," says Ian Tarran, engineering director at Arriva UK Bus.

"Using Tensator's retractable technology helps us to clearly highlight hazardous areas to prevent potential accidents."
