Safety Equipment

Safety first

A special piece of equipment, fixed to the crane, called a rotating container tippler is needed to lift the container off the wharf and swivel it inside the ship’s hold.

In the stevedoring sector, these container tipplers are normally moved onto containers manually using guide ropesA routine work, health and safety assessment identified using guide ropes to manually position the tippler onto containers as a ‘people and machinery interaction risk’.

We were determined to eliminate this hazard and complete the safety continuum in our transport process, so we worked until we found the solution.

Container Guidance Apparatus (CGA)

Flinders Logistics has developed a proprietary Container Spreader Guidance Apparatus (CGA) to eliminate the manual handling risks to wharf-side personnel. 

The guidance system, which features specialised bumper kit guides and a self-levelling mechanism to maximise stability on the CGA, has made vessel loading faster and more efficient.  Cost savings have also been achieved through reduced damage to containers and lower staff costs.

These efficiencies have enabled Flinders Logistics to demonstrate to our customers and competitors that striving for the highest possible safety standards is not just about excellent business ethics – it makes great financial sense too.
