Working from a height in any industry can be a dangerous business. One trip on top of a narrow walkway can spell disaster for workers,
their families and employers.
Booth Engineering has created one solution to eliminate the danger to tanker workers: The Booth Safety Rail System.
Complying to Australian Standard AS 1657-1992, the system has already won WorkCover Victoria's Award for Excellence and Innovation in Work Place Health and Safety.
Since the first rail systems were installed to wine tankers in 1997, hundreds of companies from diverse industries have recognised
the need for safer tankers and fitted the Booth Safety Rail System.
Made from stainless steel and weighing just 80kgs, the handrails can be fitted to any type and make of tanker.
They're easy to use. Operators simply activate a switch and the air cylinder powered railings lift into position and lock in place.
It requires minimal maintenance and can withstand all conditions.
In transit the safety rail system sits no higher than 150mm (6 inches) above the catwalk. When it's time work on top of the tanker, the system
provides 900mm (3 ft) high hand rails for the entire perimeter of the catwalk except for the ladder position.
The Booth Safety Rail System also provides safety off the road in the workshop. Preventing falls for mechanics in the workshop pits.
The Booth Safety Rail System is a registered design in Australia (132932) and New Zealand (29069). The system is patented in Australia (725447)
and New Zealand (330896) with patent pending in the United States. We believe it will become the transport industry standard internationally.
