Roadmender Asphalt provides solutions for contractors to safely adhere to government advice and stay safe while carrying out essential work.
The Sheffield-based company is highlighting a solution under the hashtag #OneManPerVan, by selling and renting out mini asphalt hot box reclaimers that can be operated as part of a single-man operation.
Hotbox Reclaimers are lightweight machines that can be mounted on either trucks or trailers and are designed to reclaim supplies of leftover or stockpiled asphalt wherever and whenever it’s needed. With multiple asphalt plants being forced to shut down to protect the safety of their workers, Roadmender Hotbox Reclaimers provide contractors with a simple way to make their own asphalt, and can also be used as part of a single-man operation ensuring smaller emergency repairs are still dealt with in a timely manner.
Harry Pearl, CEO at Roadmender Asphalt, commented on how solutions, such as the Hotbox Reclaimer, can be used to ensure government advice is heeded on site.
“While normally it’s always safer for workers to go out in at least groups of two, in the current environment it just doesn’t make sense for multiple workers to all pile into the same van together no matter how willing to carry out their work they are.
“With small Hotbox Reclaimers, workers can make their own asphalt and carry out smaller emergency repairs in effective isolation where if larger quantities of material are needed, two vehicles can go out while still maintaining a one man per van policy.”
