Working at height is one of the highest risk that mine workers are facing. And statistics show that slip and fall are a major cause of accident in the mining industry with several fatalities registered every year. On loaders, some maintenance and repair operations have to be done from the top deck. .To help our customers to control fall hazards during maintenance and repair operations, Sandvik has developed the Safety Rails system that offers an efficient protection against the risk of fall. The Safety Rails system is specifically designed for underground mining harsh environment. The Safety Rails system is operated by an electro-hydraulic system, providing immediate protection to the worker while climbing on the machine.
