Construction aggregate is coarse to medium grained particle material used in construction, including sand, gravel, slag, crushed stone, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates. These aggregates form some of the most in demand and mined material in the world. Working in Aggregate loading environments and dealing with rough surface is considered very dangerous, particularly for those working at height.

The Quarries Regulations 1999 seeks to protect employees through health and safety policies and risk assessments. Other codes of practice used to support safer working environments in quarries and mining include The Work at Height Regulations 2005 as highlighted in the Ajax whitepaper. These environments need to be regularly inspected, all employers and self-employed contractors must assess working at height risk measures and applicable standards.

Ajax has a range of solutions for hazardous aggregate mining to support safer working. Our solutions include tanker loading and platform access, mobile step units as well as gantries, walkways and platforms. The robust Tanker Truck Access Platforms are supplied with handrails that run from the top fixed step to the last moving step. Each unit also has the option of a full safety cage, which is attached to the step unit and provides an enclosed working area for maximum height safety. The Righthite mobile step unit is ideal for gaining safe access to tanker loading and high-level vehicle maintenance applications. The unit has been specifically designed in compliance with BS 5395-3:1985 code of practice for stairs, ladders and walkways.
