TITLE
Stairway improvement
ARTICLE
A steep staircase with a narrow tread and short risers led to several incidents of stumbling at Hothfield Works in Ashford. At first, a handrail along the length of the internal side of the stairway was fabricated – but this alone did not solve the problem. After consultation with the company’s SHE department, alternating offset fall restriction barriers were extended into the stairway to reduce the risk involved.
