Boral wins innovation award

  • Posted on Tuesday 18th, December 2018.

Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia has awarded building material company, Boral, its Queensland Health & Safety Innovation Award.

Boral has been recognised for developing a dual prop system to secure trailers thereby improving safety.

“The team at our Wacol depot, Queensland, has developed a new truck body prop that allows trucks and trailers to be worked on safely in a raised position,” the company said in a statement via LinkedIn.

“The dual prop system holds the bin securely and prevents any uncontrolled lowering.

“The system was developed after a risk was identified by the workshop mechanics. They worked together on the design and development of the new prop system.”

Earlier this year, GeelongPort and Boral Cement reached an agreement to construct a new clinker grinding and cement facility.
