Castell Safety in India

MAKING THE ENERGY SECTOR SAFE

  •  Generation – Across the globe, ageing power plants are being phased out and in place nuclear, renewable and cleaner technology solutions are being constructed this wider range of generation technologies creates new requirements for asset, personnel and environmental protection.
  •  Transmission & Distribution – Companies are being faced with infrastructure that is coming to end-of-life simultaneously; this means that there is pressure to look at the most efficient and cost effective solutions for their transmission and distribution sectors whilst ensuring a safe working environment. Typically projects today are delivered through a host of numerous outsourced contractors the demand for expertise and knowledge in the standards and working practices means that experience is stretched heightening the requirement for robust, efficient safety systems.
  •  Industrial & Commercial Supply – The demand for energy across industry and commerce means that switchgear systems are becoming more complex and include an aspect of continuous supply and self-generation capability. Managing more complicated switchgear systems requires robust and reliable safety systems to ensure the correct, safe mode of operation at all time.

MAKING THE INDUSTRIAL SECTOR SAFE

  • Aggregates
  • Waste & Recycling
  • Metals
  • Petrochem

Despite large advances in technology and safety procedures in recent years, the industrial market sub –sectors such as waste & recycling, aggregates and quarrying, metals and petrochem industries remain relatively dangerous, mainly caused by contact with heavy machinery. The pressure to achieve high levels of production while maintaining a spotless H&S record can lead to a strained workplace. Added to this is the practical reality of a harsh working environment, making maintenance difficult and machine failure a regular occurrence.

MAKING THE MANUFACTURING SECTOR SAFE

  • Food & Beverage
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Home Health & Beauty

The rugged design and construction of Castell’s interlocks make them suitable for use in harsh industries such as food processing and packaging, pharmaceutical and other industries where contamination is high risk and where machinery and devices must withstand harsh, regular wash-down procedures.

MAKING THE TRANSPORT SECTOR SAFE

  • Rail

Castell has a history of over 60 years around the world in the rail industry, providing robust safety products.  This means that we can ensure processes are enforced and prevent accidents throughout the network from rolling stock to repair depots and from track access protection to power supply interlocking.

Today the Rail industry is facing increasing pressure in terms of demand, capacity and return on investments. These pressures have to be met whilst ensuring the current high level of safety for both workers, passengers and the general public is increased. This creates issues across operations, maintenance, construction and power supply.

  •  Logistics & Distribution

The advancement of technology continues to enable the logistics and distribution industry to deliver more products, in a shorter period, over a wider area every year.  In a fast paced business these demands need to be managed in harmony with controlling potential risks and ensuring that workers can perform their duties in a safe environment. These risks are compounded with the increasing levels of automated equipment that are being introduced in to warehouses to drive efficiency.

Providing a safe working warehouse environment delivers improved productivity through using equipment correctly, reducing lost time to accidents and removing the risk of fines and compensation from injuries and accidents.  From machine guarding trapped key interlock solutions to Drive Away prevention (Salvo) systems at the loading dock (loading/unloading) Castell’s  Safety can be deployed across the warehouse environment to ensure that equipment and machinery is operated in a safe manner.

  •  Port & Marine

Similar to that found in the manufacturing sectors , the technology found in the mining and marine sectors also require application solutions that are able to withstand harsh environments where plastic safety switches and electrical components often fail or require continual maintenance.

Designed to protect personnel working with dangerous machinery or in hazardous environments, Castell Safety’s products are robust, durable and suitable for the heaviest of applications.  The solutions range from simple padlock based lock out tag out and procedural based systems, to trapped key interlocks for a higher level of integrity to a Salvo loading dock safety system.

Castell is a Halma Company and operates within the Halma Process Safety Sector.
