TITLE
Safe access to lorry bodies
ARTICLE
Following a regular transport review with M. Way and Son (WBB Minerals’ contract haulier), the issue of climbing in and out of lorry bodies was raised.

To address the issue, WBB Minerals worked with the contract haulier to design and build a piece of equipment
that would give safe access to the lorry bodies. The final design consisted of the following:

- A set of steps fitted with a handrail, wheels and extending handles (to enable easy manoeuvring); and
- a device to hold the tailgate open.

Drivers are now able to access the back of the lorries safely, enabling them to clean out the bodies. The successful
measures have been introduced to other sites.
