TITLE
New access platform for loading shovel
ARTICLE
An operator suffered injuries on two separate occasions whilst accessing the cab of a loading shovel. He sustained injuries to his leg after slipping through the vertical rungs of the access ladder and he suffered injuries when falling to the floor whilst leaning back to open the cab door.

By designing and installing a purpose built access platform to the machine, safe access and egress is now possible and no similar incidents have been reported
