Category four – Best individual contribution to work health and safety
Stuart Baker is the Queensland Transport Manager for Toll Chemical Services, a division of Toll Global Logistics. Stuart designed a fall arrest frame that is placed on the back of delivery vehicles for workers conducting off-site decants, also known as pump outs.
Stuart addressed the risks of falls from heights during pump out operations and conceived the idea for a new platform that could be attached to the back of delivery vehicles and locked on by twist locks to create a safe work platform.
Stuart worked with management, engineers and end users to build the platform. He then delivered training to all workers and clients in the business. His dedication and hands on approach received the highest praise from managers, colleagues, workers and clients.
