TITLE
Manual handling zip line
ARTICLE
The Standard Havens dryer drum located at Bardon Hill is a considerable length with lifters and other heavy parts located internally.

Parts such as 30kg lifters had to be carried by hand whilst negotiating various trip hazards within the dryer.

To reduce the associated risks, a zip line arrangement was fitted inside the dryer to allow the lifters to be hooked on and moved into position. This has greatly reduced the manual handling risk.
