RECLAIMED SLEEPERS (SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY)

Hardwood Railway sleepersReclaimed 'A' Grade creosoted (some reclaimed sleepers softwood & some reclaimed sleepers hardwood)

(MINIMUM ORDER FOR DELIVERY 10 SLEEPERS, SUBJECT TO LOCATION)

**** From the end of June 2003 a new EU directive becomes effective regarding creosoted products. Our understanding is that the Department of Trade & Industry rules state that creosote-treated wood must not be used "in parks, gardens and outdoor recreational leisure facilities where there is a risk of frequent skin contact" or in "containers intended for growing purposes".

Frequent could be defined as “happening or occurring often or at short intervals”. In the context of the creosote directive, frequent skin contact could be considered as repeated (habitual) contact of the skin with, for example, creosote-treated railway sleepers.

Habitual practices such as constant sitting, leaning against, laying on, walking on creosote-treated wood could be considered as frequent skin contact if there is no barrier between the skin and the treated wood.

A person constantly handling creosote treated wood, especially without gloves, as part of their job (daily routine) could be said to be making frequent skin contact with creosote.

We have provided this information to make our potential customers aware of the rules relating to creosoted sleepers. More on this subject can be found on the DTI website http://www.dti.gov.uk/ccp/topics1/facts/creosote.htm
