TITLE
Sandvik Crusher Access
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
United Kingdom
ACCIDENT / INCIDENT DETAILS
Contractors from Fintec Crushing & Screening were operating a Demonstration Crusher which is a new machine on tracks manufactured by Sandvik.

Two operators were seen on top of the machine using the middle hand rail to gain height and reach and were seen prodding something in the vicinity of the feed conveyor and crusher mouth. The machine was running! Both operators had been fully inducted and risk assessments and SWP’s were produced for the site management before the demonstration was allowed to start!

It appears that they were trying to reach the feed conveyor, which is fitted with a metal detector and they claim that with the conveyor in the raised operating position it was not possible to reach any detected metal without using the middle rail of the handrail.
