About the hub

Safequarry.com is the health and safety hub for the mineral products industries. It has been developed to enable all those working within the mineral products industries to have one location where they can access key health and safety information.

It makes accessible invaluable information that is relevant to those working throughout the supply chain; whether working at the quarry face, in related value added operations, in manufacturing plants, product transport or at the customer’s sites – the hub will help you to make your operations safer.

The goal of this website is to ensure that by facilitating the sharing of information and learning from the experience of others within the industry, we will achieve a safer environment for all those involved, employees, contractors, suppliers, customers and members of the public.

A safer working environment with a better trained and more aware workforce will help achieve the over arching goal of zero harm for all those who engage with these industries.

The site incorporates an easily searchable and extensive database of best practice, incident alerts, toolbox talks, hot topics and industry guidance often supported with short videos.

Those who register will have the additional benefit of receiving e-mail alerts when important new content is added. The site is accredited for CPD by the Institute of Quarrying and registered users who have logged on will be able to generate reports of their activity on the website.

The site was originally created by a cross industry partnership involving the MPA, BAA, the HSE and a wide range of companies within the sector. It was funded via the ALSF fund.

The site has been managed and developed by the Mineral Products Association working closely with organisations such as QNJAC, MPQC, HSE, MPQC, NePSi, as well as the full membership of the Mineral Products Association.
