ARTICLE
Maintenance, repairs and inspection of the quarry’s Mansfield crushers, created difficulties regarding manual handling, the lifting operations involving a crane, added to which, access for inspection, repairs and adjustments was poor.

It was decided to create a hydraulically operated door and hinged front panel to remedy these health and safety issues. This also included a mechanism for retaining the top hinged door whilst open. This system was then applied to the remaining crushers.
