Ice Road Safety - Incorporate roof escape hatches

Posted by Rick Prior

With winter road season just around the corner, Loch Lomond Equipment Sales would like to remind ice road construction workers to exercise extreme caution around early ice formation.  Be fully aware of the ice condition, keep machinery doors open, and use machinery that is equipped with roof escape hatches.  This link serves as a reminder from last season:  http://www.dcnonl.com/article/id54149?search_term=escape%20hatches
