Quarrying and Mining Safety Solutions

Safety in the Quarrying and Mining Industry

According to the HSE 40% of fatal accidents on quarry sites are caused by moving vehicles and 70% of all collisions occur at low speed because of poor visibility. The quarrying and mining industries operate in the toughest environments and large mobile plant machinery can pose a real danger to safety. Ensuring a safe environment for this industry and its workers is challenging but an essential task.

Operators visibility is limited when driving these giant machines. For example, some dump trucks cannot see 1.8m high twenty meters in front. This can be made worse by terrain, dust, weather, low light and darkness.  These are noisy environments to work in and workers hearing can be impaired. So much so that audible alarms are not always heard.

We work with some of the most reputable construction and plant businesses in the industry.  We identify their needs to ensure all their vehicles are fully equipped with the latest safety technology.
