Large numbers of Irish Concrete Federation (ICF) members attended the recent health and safety workshops hosted by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) and the ICF. The presentations highlighted the different initiatives on quarry safety to be undertaken in quarries by the authority in 2019.
ICF was delighted to welcome speakers from the HSA and Irish Water Safety to the workshops. The presentations focused on the areas of fixed and mobile crushers, boundaries and water hazards and vehicle and pedestrian safety.
HSA will be carrying out focused inspections at relevant periods during 2019 and the initiative on vehicle and pedestrian safety will coincide with Quarry Safety Week 2019 in September.
Presentations can be found in the members area of this website.
