TITLE
Crusher access improvements
ARTICLE
The old crusher at Wivenhoe did not have a good enough reduction ratio because too much oversize was recirculating. To try and improve this, a secondhand Baxter jaw crusher was brought in from another site. However, there was no easy access.

A new platform was designed that would give safe access and sufficient room to work safely. Manager-led discussions with the workforce led to recommendations on platform width, steps and handrail configurations.

The platform has been built internally and provides a safer way to work based on the ideas of the workforce.
