Tester Sandwich placement
• Based in the Operations department. Mainly involved with testing of fork truck, diesel
protection systems for hazardous areas ensuring they conformed to current legislation.
This involved demonstrations of the effectiveness of protection systems to potential clients
and visitors. The testing of new variations of diesel protection devices for fork truck and
offshore applications to satisfy legislation and external auditors, which involved time
management and team work ensuring testing was achieved between production, ﬁtting
and shipping. Research testing was developed to create more realistic tests of worst case
scenarios and temperature testing of current, new and trial protection systems.
• Major achievement was the development of the test facility into an independent
test laboratory in accordance with new upcoming legislation. This required project
management in the production of new laboratory test procedures, the development of
