|Blasting Services’ expertise as drilling and blasting contractors means that its plant is regularly transported to sites across the UK.
A health and safety problem was identified when machinery is loaded on to a trailer for transportation, because the access steps are a metre too short.
This made access and egress from the cab potentially hazardous, especially in adverse weather when there is the potential for an operator’s footing to slip.
In order to rectify the issue, Blasting Services designed a set of fold-away steps that make access and egress from the cab safe.
The steps take less than a minute to assemble, weigh just three kilograms, can be adjusted to fit various plant and include vent holes so that mud and soil passes through the steps.
