As host of the 2009 South East Quarries and Landfill Group (SEQLG) safety day, Tarmac Region 4 decided to extend the event for a further three days, enabling as many Tarmac operational staff as possible to attend. With a focus on worker involvement, the event involved quarry safety inductions, emergency muster points and first aid points.
Teams of delegates were given a series of presentations, demonstrations and discussions, covering the following important safety messages:
Fault finding and guarding
Working at height
Emergency drills (Urban Search & Rescue Team).
The event was a resounding success with approximately 90% of the region’s operational staff attending.
1.Significant improvement with interaction between different operational departments
2.A heightened sense of camaraderie and solidarity across the groups
3.A reiteration of company standards, best practices and ‘what good looks like’
4.Staff to come forward and speak up with confidence.
