TITLE
Improving plant access
ARTICLE
The Huntsmans Quarries plant at Naunton Quarry, Gloucestershire has introduced a progressive programme to replace frequently used vertical ladders with stairs where possible.

Whilst in good condition, the plant is old in design, and many of the existing stairs and walkways were narrow, with steps and running boards made from wood.

To improve safety, the company replaced narrow stairs and walkways with wider units including steel open mesh flooring. This enables easier access and reduces the build up of material, as well as being easier to keep clean.
