Coalpro, the trade association for UK coal producers, produced this comprehensive guidance document on traffic management in quarries and has allowed QNJAC to adopt it.
QNJAC recognises that this guidance is aimed at the opencast coal industry. However, the principles it contains are applicable to any size and type of quarrying operation.
The photographs in the document are inevitably of large mining plant and equipment and this must be borne in mind.
This information sheet has been developed by Coalpro and endorsed by QNJAC to help quarry operators, contractors, managers and others make health and safety improvements in the quarry industry. This guidance represents good practice which may go further than the minimum you need to do to comply with the law.
