I would think that you need to find out what the people in charge would consider appropriate. Since they seem to have shot all the ideas you who have to live with the solution have had, bounce it back to them. At some point it would seem appropriate to get OSHA involved in the discussion as well so you can be sure that you are covered there.

I agree with Joe that the least expensive would be to move prepress (or at least the plate making) to the same floor as the presses... Or you could propose they move the presses to your floor...  :homer:

I would suggest having the pressmen stand down there and you throw them to them like a frisbee. A few pressmen sliced in half might make them turn loose of some money. :rotf:

When I worked at the Newspaper We worked above the presses, We had a conveyor for the plates
prolly too costly tho, There must be a solution with that bay somehow.
I use to have to make that trek with the plates, so I know what your talking about!!

My best idea is a shoulder strap solution, carry them like a golf bag, the weight on your skeleton and just steadied with your hands. I met resistance / fear that if someone slipped on the stairs that the plate load would drag them down with it. kind of a funny thought actually...

Yes, frustrating, someone with some corporate pull declared it a safety issue and we shopped the used forklift and were all set, then someone with MORE pull dis-approved the spending. Back to square one.

Trouble is, somebody will prolly have to get their hand sliced in half before management thinks it worth doing something about.

Thank you for the feedback!
I would love to build a dumbwaiter, but it's a non-starter because it breaks some rules regarding the height / distance.
I like the trolly but not sure about making it work on the stairs - which are 2 half flights with a 180degree turn at the landing half way.
...since we are prohibited from winching them.
ugh. Ratchet tie-down with a grab handle is still our best working theory right now but I will pass the glass trolly idea up.
thanks again y'all
