Kelso Technologies Inc.: Business Development Alliance With SafeRack

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and DOWNERS GROVE, ILLINOIS--(Marketwired - March 20, 2014) - Kelso Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KLS)(OTCQX:KEOSF) - The Company reports that it has formed a strategic business and engineering alliance with SafeRack Loading Rack Technologies ("SafeRack"). The goal is to incorporate Kelso's one-bolt Kelso Klincher(R) Manway ("KKM") technology as an integral part of a new generation of high-capacity crude oil loading terminal systems designed and provided by SafeRack. SafeRack is the leading expert in crude oil and liquid natural gas loading terminal engineering, procurement and construction services for the railroad and trucking industry.

Under the arrangement Kelso and SafeRack have successfully developed and tested a fully functional loading arm adaptor that fits both the KKM and older hinged 6 and 8 eye-bolt manways currently in service on tank cars in North America. The adaptor attaches permanently to the existing loading arm apparatus and connects the loading arm to any existing manway in service today. The adaptors are a minimal expense when measured against the substantial capacity gains they will produce hence addressing the concerns of additional capital expenditures required to convert loading terminals that top load HAZMAT.

SafeRack and Kelso are currently educating HAZMAT shippers on the compelling economic advantages and operational benefits for the commercial adoption of the KKM which include:

Is Your Fall Protection Plan Lucky or Safety?

When a worker survives a fall unscathed, we often hear someone say he or she was "lucky." While that may be true, luck, good fortune or guardian angels are no substitute for an effective fall protection plan. We talked to numerous customers about their fall protection plans to come up with the following four pillars of our SAFE fall protection plan. Think of them as your lucky four leaf clover.

1. See This first pillar involves identifying where the greatest risk of fall lies. Conduct a fall hazard analysis of the work area and identify the extent of the hazard and what you can do to eliminate or mitigate risk.

2. Act Assign and empower a safety team. In many companies the safety team has the authority to act on safety issues, especially issues that can be remedied quickly. For those safety issues that may require additional investment, the team acts as a liaison with management to escalate the safety issue and work toward a remedy.

3. Follow-up This pillar refers to issues previously addressed as well as changes that may have introduced new safety issues. Follow-up is the equivalent of continuous improvement. It's about continuously seeking to improve safety through policy, practices or new / improved personal protection equipment (PPE).

4. Engage Companies with the safest records also have a high rate of engagement and awareness in safety among colleagues. Whether it's through safety-specific training programs or operator training programs that integrate safety, these companies continually cultivate a safety mindset into everything they do.

Stay SAFE. That's our motto. Leave luck for the lottery, and plan for effective fall protection. Often a safer workplace involves small common sense changes or investments that far outweigh the effects of a fall. Changes to a procedure, the addition of PPE or a safety gate or work platform--all can significantly improve safety. Learn how SafeRack can improve fall protection at your workplace.
