Content: The talk will cover the characteristics of two mechanical safety devices developed by KK, which are able to reduce the industrial accident and traffic accident. The first device is an Automatic Trap Canvas for Dumper Truck. It is dangerous for the worker climbing up to the trap for tightening up the canvas cover as he/she may fall down from the trap by accident. The automatic canvas cover is safe to operate for the worker by pressing the button inside the driving cabinet. The canvas cover can be opened and closed automatically. The second device is an Automatic Hazard Warning Indicator Lamp Flash Controller used to avoid traffic accident which may happen within a short distance between two vehicles. Sometimes the vehicles will keep close to each other, and the driver may apply emergency brake when the forward direction is blocked. In this situation, he/she may have no time to press the hazard warning indicator lamp on to warn the rear vehicle. Therefore, it is essential to have an automatic switch on the hazard warning indicator lamp so as to give the signal to the rear vehicle driver to take immediate action to slow down the speed to avoid vehicle impact.
Remarks: No attendance certificate will be issued to those who arrived after 7:15pm. Certificate (without chop) will be distributed to IOSH members during registration. IOSH (HK) helpers will stamp the certificates after the seminar. Certificate is invalid without the chop.
