Real safety issues
Precision Maintenance had experienced numerous safety incidents, with operators slipping on the Continuous Miner Machine platform.
The platform’s ‘standard’ handrail provided little grip, causing a number of miners to fall to the floor and causing a broken finger.
Precision Mining identified a number of necessary improvements, including a more effective and versatile handrail design. This was a critical and urgent need for all machines, given the clear safety issues and differing heights, shapes and materials.
Inspired safety solutions
Customised yellow KAG Safety Rails were the perfect solution – offering superior grip, improved safety and suitability for all three Continuous Miner Machines.
- Consistently positive feedback from all operators using the handrails.
- Reduced maintenance costs and holding of ‘spares’ due to consistency between machines.
“Quality and design of the product is excellent. The team had a solution for us by the end of the day that we all felt would work great.”
