TITLE
Conveyor blockage access platform
ARTICLE
Staff at Kiplin Hall Quarry have addressed the potential safety hazards involved with clearing the clay blockages which occur when the jaw crusher flattens the material which then builds at the base of the conveyor chute.

The team designed and constructed a portable access platform, situated at the base of the conveyor where the blockage arises, and provides a safe, raised level surface from which operatives can work on the blockage. This reduces the need for stretching and overreaching, thus lowering the risk of injury.
