TITLE
Safe working at height on truck mixers
ARTICLE
An investigation was launched following an accident involving an Aggregate Industries driver on a customer’s site, when his foot slid off the access ladder on his mixer truck.

Fortunately he wasn’t badly hurt, but it lead to a discussion session to find a better way to access the rear of the truck for washing down purposes.

Prototype steps were installed and, following feedback from drivers, further alterations were made.

The final ladders were retro-fitted to all Ripon based company owned mixer trucks and there have been no further incidents of slipping off ladders.
