Safe Tanker Access While Working at Height

Safe Tanker Access While Working at Height

Ajax Safe Access have been busy in Hartlepool this month installing a staircase, platform and Righthite Step Unit construction for OMYA.

A leading global producer of industrial minerals and a worldwide distributor of specialty chemical, OMYA need to have efficient equipment to aid their daily processing procedures.


With various top loading tankers travelling to and from their Hartlepool location, OMYA required a safe access platform to access their tankers for maintenance and other loading uses.

From the OMYA specification, the Ajax team chose the Ajax Righthite Pneumatic Step Unit MK2, which was installed onto a double flight staircase and working platform.

With space being a premium at this location, the staircase construction was formed with a half landing for it to ‘dog-leg’ back on itself – reducing the floor space coverage.


Once installed, the Step Unit was tested for performance and signed off. Today, it is working daily with various tanker heights providing all-round protection for operatives working at height.

OMYA were very happy with the service and quality of manufacture and installation they are already looking to use similar Ajax products at their Amsterdam location.
