Ajax were approached by a leading waste management company to provide a safe access system for their employees. The client needed an access system that enabled tanker access for inspection and loading; the system needed to be easy to operate, durable and addressed working at height safety concerns.
Ajax arranged a number of site visits to inspect and survey the location of the step unit and to fully understand the client needs. The Ajax technical advisor suggested a pneumatic step unit was the ideal solution for tanker access. To eliminate the risks of falls a bespoke safety cage was added on top as well as handrails from the top fixed step to the last moving step. The Ajax project management team provided full installation of the unit including access stair and gantry, staff training as well as offering full annual inspection and maintenance. The client was satisfied with the step unit as it enabled employees to gain access to delivery and collecting road tankers both safely and efficiently.
