Mobile Crushing and Mobile Screening Plant
As a result of a review of two separate and tragic incidents within the UK aggregates industry sector, in which two workers received fatal injuries whilst moving mobile tracked crusher units, an MPA member company has put in place an immediate UK wide ban on anyone - employed or contracted – moving mobile crushing and screening machines alone.

LEARNING POINTS / ACTIONS TAKEN
- All movements must be supervised and be across a planned and clear route.
- Failsafe controls should be used to prevent the machine from operating when the operator releases the controls.
- Risk assessments and safe working practices must be in place and reviewed prior to machines being moved. In particular, the need for a second man/banks-man with a clearly defined route is important.
