One of the primary concerns for any mining company is ensuring the wellbeing of its workers, which is why safety equipment is a vital investment. There are many areas in which a business can boost its employee safety procedures, including barge-loading processes. Any mining company that frequently moves metals and minerals via barges should have the best possible safety structures in place, with these upgrades often enhancing productivity. Many businesses still use a combination of old gangways and ladders to access, repair and exit the dock and barges, posing a threat to worker safety and failing to maximise the efficiency of time and human resources. Carbis Incorporated, a world leader in fall prevention solutions, can provide high-end marine access technology that not only makes processes more effective, but by creating a safer working environment can also boost staff morale. For example, a fixed barge access gangway means personnel can quickly and safely get on and off the vessel at any tide level. Due to it being fixed in place, this removes the need for a forklift to move a gangway or ladder into place, saving valuable time with each use. But what safety accessories does the gangway have to ensure worker wellbeing remains top of the agenda? Well, as a single piece of equipment it is much more reliable, and it also has handrails and a sturdy walk surface. Carbis Incorporated’s clients have touted the benefits of these products, claiming they have maximised the efficiency of loading processes, while preventing all worker injuries caused by unsafe access equipment. Any business looking to set itself apart from its competitors should consider investing in Carbis’ range of safety equipment. Carbis’ attentiveness, response time and experience of the marine access solutions market ensures a premium service at all times. CARBIS – The World Leader in Fall Prevention Equipment
