Castell Safety International

Since 1922 Castell Safety has worked closely with industry to find and develop the most suitable solutions to site based Health & Safety problems. Castell offer a full service from risk assessment, design & consultancy, manufacturing, supply & installation of full turn key package process safety solutions.

Castell's products eliminate/minimize workplace hazards to achieve your accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 & Provision and use of Work Equipment regulations (PUWER) 1998. They are designed to protect both man & machine.Salvo, a product that interlocks the trailer to the loading bay ensuring a drive-away cannot occur during loading and unloading.

Salvo prevents drive-aways at loading bays and reduces the dependency on written procedures. The drivers can retain their keys and above all, the loaders are in control of the situation at all times.

Additional to the increased safety, Salvo has also been seen to improve the efficiency of the loading operation through improved communication between the yard and the loader with Salvo giving the loader immediate indication that the trailer is ready for loading. Also, a previously unrecognised advantage of implementing Salvo is the security aspect. Salvo ensures the loading bay doors cannot be opened until a trailer is in place, reducing the likelihood of unauthorised access into the building via an open bay door.

The Salvo forces the operator / driver to carry out tasks prior to the loading process beginning. The Salvo removes the human error element. Most existing safety products used in the loading bay industry are procedure controlled, i.e. they should be used but nothing forces them to be implemented.

Our vast product range is a testament to the challenges we have faced and conquered. They are robust, cost effective & manufactured to the highest standards with little if any maintenance required.
