Concrete Skips (Reduced Entrapment)

Best Practice - Consider at all locations

  • Where possible, concrete skips that do not require bale arms to be secured with a safety chain should be used. Examples of these are:
  • Bale arm type with lugs that restrict the bale arm from dropping into a crush position
  • Non-bale arm types that use a two leg chain system to lift or lay flat the skip.
  • Skips of this type should be used in preference to those with a bale arm.
  • If bale arm type skips are required please see Visual Standard SHE-VIS-053 – Concrete Skips (Entrapment Risk) for how these must be managed.
