TITLE
Cleaning platform for premix chute
ARTICLE
At Hanson’s Kings Cross premix plant in London, there is a need to clean the underside of the discharge area below a chute under the pan mixer.

A lack of access into this chute prevented staff from easily cleaning out the hardened concrete. Using an air chisel meant great discomfort, caused manual handling issues and carried a potential fall risk.

To counter this, a working platform was fitted inside the chute to allow access for an employee to stand and work.

A task that was uncomfortable, claustrophobic and potentially dangerous, can now be undertaken with
relative ease.
