We do a range of testing on site that involves explosive forces and other heavy equipment. This testing will generally be accompanied by a siren blast and flashing light. Just prior to testing commencing, there will be an intercom announcement to advise site of what and when the testing will take place. Flashing warning lights are also used to increase visibility of more hazardous areas and plant/equipment during operation, for example the forklift, gantry crane, propagation tube testing (MSTRC) and flameproof test bay (TTCC).
Different tags are used to provide information about equipment and potential risks.
This tag is used to help prevent unauthorised or inadvertent operation of plant that is currently under repair, servicing or maintenance. The tag should be placed by the person identifying when there is a requirement that the equipment must not be started or operated while a person is working on the plant.
Because our testing work involves dusts and other hazardous situations, it’s essential that you use/wear the correct PPE at all times when working at Simtars. PPE can include any of the following:

We do not wait for the second alarm tone. Our marshalling point is the large grass area to the left of the gate located on Montgomery Street. It is marked with an Assembly Point sign in green and white. When evacuating, staff and any visitors or tradespeople on site must make their way to the marshalling point using the safest route possible, making sure to follow the directions given by the Fire Wardens on site.
