10 years of safer quarries celebrated at major industry event

10 years of success in reducing death and injury in Great Britain’s quarries will be marked in a special address at the Hillhead 2010 quarry exhibition this week – one of the biggest events in the quarrying calendar.

Reportable injuries in the sector are down 76 per cent since the ‘Hard Target’ initiative was launched in 2000 and Judith Hackitt, Chair of HSE, will be commending the companies, trade bodies and trade unions for their efforts.
