Local metallurgists take safety to the next level
Project: Overall Forge Pty Ltd
Sector: Facility Management
The Height of Safety
Overall Forge have been servicing Australia for over 100 years – now with over 90 staff including 12 metallurgists. Anchor Safe recently provided the open die forge company with a range of safe access solutions, tailored to their unique milling machines and furnaces used for the forging of raw materials. Anchor Safe was fortunate enough to see firsthand the entire process from raw material receipt through to finish bar and near shape sizes, and were able to provide safe access along this process line.
Delivering results from top to bottom
Overall Forge is a fully integrated facility whereby all production is done in-house. For the Australian company to continue to create world-class, high-performance alloys, regular machine maintenance is imperative. Anchor Safe supplied and installed customised guardrails with self-closing gates on each milling machine and furnace. These allowed maintenance personnel to inspect and audit each machine with safe and easy access. The access systems, designed and installed by Anchor Safe, now provide the highest level of fall prevention by catering for the unique maintenance access requirements of each milling machine based on the size and location of each.
Testimony to the precision and care with which the Anchor Safe team executed the project, Overall Forge continued to up their safety game. This led to Anchor Safe conducting a review of access to the Company’s rooftop exhaust extraction fans and providing recommendations for a new safe roof access system. A fall restraint system for the safe servicing (in a confined space) of the Company’s press and davit systems were also developed.
