EKpass Creates Sideboom Awareness Safety Tool

 

September 2011

 

EKpass is pleased to announce the release of the newly created Sideboom Awareness Booklet for the pipeline industry. These pocket size booklets illustrate the pinching and crushing hazards associated with the sideboom. Whether used in a traditional pipeline application or in specialized applications such as lifting derailed rail cars, this booklet helps protect sideboom operators as well as those who work around the sideboom. Additional illustrations of the danger zone as well as center of gravity illustrations showing the effect of counterweight use is also part of the publication.

 

Following a request from EKpass customer Willbros Canada, this booklet was developed by EKpass using our extensive library of proprietary data including EKpass pictures and illustrations. Kevin Fleury, President and CEO of Willbros Canada stated, “We are pleased to share any information with the pipeline industry that will increase the safety awareness and protection of all workers.” This booklet and its content is available exclusively from EKpass and to our knowledge no similar compilations exist anywhere else. The booklets are complete with a quiz at the back as well as an acknowledgement page for the recipient to sign acknowledging that they have been through this program.

 

These booklets can be ordered with company specific logos where preferred.
