Structure, organisation and some paperwork is needed to reduce health and safety risks at a quarry.

 

Quarries contain health and safety risks. If something goes wrong, quarry workers can be seriously or fatally injured.

Structure, organisation and some paperwork is needed to reduce health and safety risks at a quarry. A health and safety management system provides this and helps with decisions about what risk controls are used.

This document provides the outline of a health and safety management system. Following the guidelines and completing the templates so they apply to your quarry, will provide the management system you need to safely manage your quarry. If you already have a management system, you can use this document to identify gaps, and fill these gaps using these templates.
