Recycled Timber Steps

The contractor has found a cost effective way to reuse their surplus euro pallets and timber offcuts, by designing and constructing timber steps which are used as a temporary solution during construction to help reduce slips, trips and falls.

The steps have been checked by the design department, and form part of the weekly inspection regime. This recycling of what would previously have been waste wood heading for landfill, ensures the workers have safe and secure access to all areas.

The design has been developed based on the safe working load of a standard euro pallet of 1500kg meaning that these steps are more than adequate as a temporary solution, the handrails have also been constructed of timber off cuts.
