This self-audit has been produced by a working group of QNJAC which comprises industry experts from varied backgrounds, the Trade Unions and HSE.

The purpose of this document is to provide a structured framework to enable organisations to carry out self-audits of geotechnical procedures to prove their effectiveness as well as identifying weaknesses in the systems on site that could lead to serious injury or loss of life. It can be used and adapted by any organisation that creates excavations and tips for the purposes of extraction and quarrying and where the requirements of the Quarries Regulations 1999 apply.
