TITLE
Health and safety ‘Golden rules’
ARTICLE
A competition was held for employees at Dry Rigg Quarry to produce a list of health and safety ‘golden rules’ which would be applied to the site. All workers were encouraged to spend time thinking about the hazards they encountered and ways to overcome these through good practice. A prize was offered to the employee who suggested the most rules that figured in the top ten. This acted as an extra incentive to carefully consider the options.

Once the entries had been submitted, they were reviewed and a final priority list, based on how many times they appeared, was produced and provided back to the workers. Generating the site rules in this way has given employees a greater responsibility and understanding towards safety issues on site.
