The Tech Vest® has been primarily utilized in the underground mining industry for over 15 years and has now found its way to the surface for a new application.
Glencore’s Bulga Coal Open cut mine is now using a variant of the Tech Vest® for its Coal Handling Preparation Plant workforce. The variant in use, as pictured above, is based on the standard Tech Vest® harness with smaller utility pouches attached to hold items such as:
- Wash-down hose nozzle
- Spare safety glasses
- Small spare parts
In conjunction with the Tech Vest® tool holster, the Coal Handling Preparation Plant operator can comfortably carry the necessary tools and equipment to allow them to be more productive during their shift.
