TITLE
Handrailing around screen tops
ARTICLE
The screen tops at Cliffe Hill Quarry are regularly used as work platforms. Although less than two metres above the ground, these slightly sloping surfaces were deemed to present significant risks of tripping and/or falling.

Handrailing components were anchored to the “fixed” sections of the screen support structure to avoid heavy vibration and unbalancing the screen drives.
