TITLE
Welfare facilities
ARTICLE
Welfare facilities that had been present at this quarry since the 1960s had become progressively inadequate. With the strong involvement of the workforce, new facilities were developed, including:
? Canteen, first aid and training room
? Separate toilet and shower facilities for male and female employees
? On site water treatment
? Power and communication provision
? Car access, parking and pedestrian walkways ensuring segregation from large quarry vehicles.

The new buildings feature cavity block walls and tiled roofs with solar panels, which will give them a life-span beyond that of the quarry.
