ISO containers have become increasingly popular, especially in the chemical and food industries. Isotainers come in a wide variety of configurations, and require specialized fall prevention equipment for safe loading and unloading.
When facilities lack the necessary equipment, employees often resort to unsafe workarounds when accessing the bottom valve or opening storm doors. This increases their risk of falling between an ISO container tank and the supporting frame.
As ISO containers become more prevalent, a comprehensive safety solution is critical to protecting your workers while driving efficiency.
We have provided thousands of solutions over the past 80 years. Let us design a solution that exactly meets your needs.
Our Solutions-Based Approach To ISO Containers
Since every loading site has different needs and challenges, it’s essential to work closely with a trusted vendor. At Carbis Solutions, we start by determining your facility’s requirements and safety goals. The factors we assess include:
The operator’s tasks and environment while working with ISO containers
The properties of your product and any safety hazards it may present
Your specific loading process
How to correctly and continuously spot the truck in the proper location
How your site layout impacts traffic flow and the safety equipment you use
Power limitations for electric, pneumatic and hydraulic equipment
Your internal safety standards as well as applicable industry standards and best practices
After assessing your company’s needs, we work with you to design a custom solution for your facility that helps to increase productivity and minimize downtime while enhancing safety.
ISO Container Safety Equipment
Here are a few examples of equipment we may suggest as part of your larger safety solution:
Truck Safety Cages
A well-designed truck fall protection cage allows workers to access ISO container hatches with confidence. Since the cage surrounds the operator with railings, it eliminates the need for tie-off fall prevention systems, giving operators room to perform their jobs with greater efficiency.
Elevating Truck Platforms
Our elevating truck platform with flip-up panels reduces the risk of slip-and-fall accidents. The platform adjusts to the optimal access height, and integrated flip-up floor panels maximize safety while accommodating the wide variety of hatch configurations found on today’s ISO containers.
Adding an isotainer tread to your loading gangway gives your loading or unloading spot increased versatility. This equipment allows you to safely access isotainers and seatainers, as well as all of the vehicle types you currently use.
