TITLE
Admixture conveyor guards and platform
ARTICLE
Before there were improvements at this site, admixtures were added to the conveyor belt from ground level. This was considered bad practice as there were risks from manual handling and entrapment.

To address these issues a metal grid was placed over the conveyor and attached to the top of the conveyor side guards. This boxed the conveyor in, eliminating the danger from the conveyor belt or any moving parts associated with the conveyor. To allow safe access to the conveyor, a platform was built which reduced the manual handling issues.
