Precision Maintenance QLD (Underground Mining)
Identified 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.
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.
