Power to the PCL
Energy supplier Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) has teamed up with PCL to provide its staff with a vital gift to keep them safe on the roads. As the latest project in its on-going Health and Safety initiative, SSE decided to target tyre maintenance which, if neglected, can cause serious, even fatal, accidents.
PCL was asked to supply 17,500 pencil-style tyre pressure gauges along with tyre trade depth gauges, which SSE gave to employees in a company wallet enclosing a safety information/advice card. The response was so great that a further 2,000 of each gauge were supplied to cover the extra unexpected demand.
PCL’s reliable TPG3 is designed to British Standards and has an angled head which is suitable for both car and commercial vehicles. The TDG16 is also a handy, lightweight piece of equipment with a pocket clip. It complies with EC Directives, is easy to read and is accepted by the Department of Transport for MoT testing.
PCL’s Marketing Manager, Matthew Butters, said: “We are committed to the design and manufacture of accurate tyre pressure and tyre tread depth gauges for maximum safety, so we were pleased to be part of SSE’s Health and Safety initiative. The company is clearly interested in the welfare of its employees and tyre safety is an essential, but unfortunately all too often overlooked means of keeping drivers safe on the roads.”
