Excavators – Improving Safe Access and Egress

Falls from vehicles are among the most common accidents on site and represent a third of all accidents involving workplace transport.

Research undertaken by the Health and Safety Executive confirms that a third of the accidents are caused by an initial slip or trip.

AE Faulks Ltd is adding further safety features to their tracked and wheeled excavators.  To improve safe access and egress into the cab and onto our earthmoving equipment (for refuelling and maintenance) the point of contact of our handrails, grab rails and access steps are being highlighted in high visibility paint.
