TITLE
Contractor quarry safety inductions
ARTICLE
A quarry specific induction was jointly initiated by WBB Minerals and Fox (Owmby) Ltd, developed from a close partnership going back to 2000. This scheme included sharing safety information; co-operation on training; joint site inspections and audits; and co-operation in working towards the OHSAS 18001 certification.

The induction was developed to focus on the operational safety within the working quarry. It was targeted at Fox’s plant operators and supported WBB Mineral’s existing induction programme for workers in the process area.

The induction works by offering multi-site safety information and allowing for site-specific information to be offered when it is required. It consists of training and assessments with operators receiving certification upon completion. The training is monitored and audited by a third party training certification body, the Construction Plant Register Ltd, to help achieve the high standards required.
