|Quarry workplace safety days
A programme of safety, health and quality events was held over two days in early
January 2010 covering a variety of industry related topics.
Topics covered included:
Network Rail safety bus
Rule of three
Work at height
A workbook contains the day’s itinerary and a test of understanding for each topic
station is carried out.
Attendees are split into teams representing a cross section of trades and risks.
Over 120 quarry/asphalt operatives and contractors attended the safety days.
Improved both the individual and team attitudes to safety, changed behaviour and raised awareness of the selected topics presented on the day. The MD’s challenge was to raise the safety profile on their sites by challenging unsafe acts and behaviour.
