TITLE
Ensuring competency of hauliers
ARTICLE
Aram Resources is working hard to ensure that road haulage drivers are competent and familiar with its Carnsew Quarry. Comprehensive instructions, combined with a map of the site on one A4 laminated sheet, are issued to all hauliers visiting the quarry and recorded in a register which is signed by the driver. Bitumen tanker drivers have their own special instruction sheet.

Safety issues are the top of the agenda at annual meetings with the regular hauliers. Their suggested improvements are considered and adopted where possible. The thinking is that who better than the drivers themselves to point out concerns about their own safety?

The company has also opted for a policy of “naming and shaming” those drivers who repeatedly put their own welfare – and that of others – at risk through potentially dangerous actions. Names are listed on a list at the weighbridge and repeat offenders are liable to a ban from the quarry.
