TITLE
Preventing trip hazards in the wet
ARTICLE
Glensanda Quarry is situated on the Morvern Peninsular, where there is no road access. As a result, employees, contractors and visitors all have to travel to site by boat.

The company identified that its jetties contained multiple trip hazards, particularly in the wet. The wooden gangways were covered with wire mesh to assist footing, but were still a concern when boarding and landing.

The company purchased fibreglass decking and gangway installation was carried out in-house. In addition, the original steps were replaced due to their potential hazards and restrictions.
