Health & Safety Recognition from the MPA

02.01.22

Suttle Stone Quarries are members of the MPA – Mineral Products Association – a trade body for our industry with many core values including; Improving health & safety and encouraging innovation. Each year they conduct health and safety awards where by a company can submit an idea pertaining to a good Health & Safety practice that they have come up with and have used.

 

At the end of last year our director of quarrying, Simon, submitted an idea for Swanworth Quarry which Jimmy and Ian had come up with to make a job safer. The idea was quite simple, the installation of a small platform to stand on when pulling screen mats out of a screen box and one of our mobile screeners, prior to this there was only a narrow bar which is not ideal.

 

Although we didn’t win a main award on this occasion the company was recognised for submitting an example with a ‘Sharing Good Practice’ award.
