Anti-kick devices at CAS

Anti-kick devices at CAS

At one of our customer visits recently, an Operator dropped a battery angled screwdriver after it ‘kicked’ during shut-off. As we provide Anti-kick devices at CAS, this was a prime opportunity for us to be able to solve a problem.

The customer asked CAS for potential countermeasure options, so we took in a similar tool with an anti-kick device fitted. We tightened earth straps at a high level due to possible future health and safety risks.

Line trials carried out by comparing this tool to what they previously used on the actual fixings.

Our contact, the Team Leader and his team were so impressed that we ended up demonstrating to the Section Manager, the H&S Manager and then the Shop Operations Manager.

It was then left with the customer to carry out further trials and was concluded as the countermeasure.

These are on order now and awaiting delivery with the solution rolled out across site and then shared to their sister sites.👌

The solution sold itself and is exactly what they needed to alleviate the issue being experiencing.😃

Directors Meeting at CAS!

The Directors Meeting at CAS was off site last Friday and was done in style!

Planning, organising, recruitment, finances were the topic of conversation, all in their Christmas hats! It’s not often they get to pose together so this was a bonus for us to capture them all!
