The Enhanced Emergency Lighting (EEL) barrier was invented by product design graduate Ian Burnell and developed with DIT Hothouse, which is now seeking companies to license it and bring it to market. The design principally aims to make crash sites safer for emergency services personnel and has been trialled by the Dublin Fire Brigade.

Ian won Best Undergraduate Researcher Award at the 2013 Inventor Competition and the product also reached the semi-finals of the 2012 James Dyson International Design Awards. It is patent protected and has received media buzz (appearing in the Irish Independent Business pages on 25 July this year). The product has a unique retractable design, is lightweight and has a highly reflective surface and embedded LED lights. For more information on the EEL barrier, click here. Back to Top. Handrail innovation boosts workers' safety - Acusafe. Award-winning safety innovation. A new safety innovation for rigging and handling. In the great Aussie spirit of invention, four scaffolders with extensive experience in the field have come up with a great new innovation in rigging safety aids, the TAG-EX.

A new safety innovation for rigging and handling

When working on a construction or maintenance site, a dogman, rigger or scaffolder will need to catch on to a tagline, the rope that must be attached to any rigged load in order to control its movement by hand. One of the biggest safety risks in rigging is placing yourself under any suspended load, and this practice is so dangerous that most companies have strict life-saving rules that prevent workers from doing so… in theory.

Sometimes in the course of their duties riggers cannot avoid getting under a suspended load, or at least in the load shadow (the area under a load into which that load could fall and cause damage if dropped), and it’s usually because they need to catch onto the tagline to guide the lifted load into landing position. H-E Parts CME: Innovations in Safety Earn Worldwide Recognition. The conventional process for replacing crusher liners can be hazardous for crusher operators.

Reports abound of incidents where a lifting lug (temporarily welded onto the liner to remove it from the crusher’s mantle) breaks away from the liner, hurtling over a thousand pounds of metal onto the technician below, who has little time to react. The result is often shattered limbs … or worse. That’s why H-E Parts CME (Crushing & Mining Equipment), one of the largest global suppliers of crushing equipment and consumables to the mining and quarry markets, developed its proprietary LockLift® Mantle Lifting System–to equip customers with the safest means to service their crushers. And the market has taken notice. LockLift® earned CME the prestigious SKILLED Safety Innovation Award for 2012 at the SKILLED Gala sponsored by IFAP (Industrial Foundation for Accident Prevention) and GCU Insurance, held October 11, 2012, at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Center in West Australia.
