|Handrails and steps for the face screen conveyor
|After an internal audit identified a potential fall from height hazard in clearing the conveyor on the face screen, the site team suggested some solutions. The addition of handrails and access steps was agreed upon as they enclose operatives on the main belt and prevent a fall. It also means that operatives do not need to wait for a telehandler or a man basket, which saves time.
The handrails are effective at this sand and gravel site, but would not be advisable at a rock quarry, due to the different type of material stopped on load and the risks of injury and slips.
