ARTICLE
At Johnston Roadstone’s Leaton Quarry, considerable thought has gone into a combination of engineering improvements; health surveillance; employee awareness, training & education; also first aid provision and an emergency rescue centre. Replacement fixed plant has been designed to effect major reductions in dust, noise and the need for manual handling of heavy items. Comprehensive health surveillance is carried out by a Registered Nurse who attends the quarry for half an hour each day and also advises on matters of diet, exercise, etc. The system is popular with the workforce as well as the management and is considered exceptional value at £2,300 per year.
