Job cards
ARTICLE
Within a quarry, activities such as excavating and tipping have a high potential risk of injury if not carried out correctly.

Instructional documents describing how these activities should be completed are often lengthy, only issued periodically and are kept in the office.

To help ensure that the workforce involved with these activities understood the correct procedures, job cards were created as a handy reference to be reviewed before carrying out each specific activity.

Designed to be carried in machinery cabs, they communicate rules and instructions in a straightforward and simple manner, using diagrams and text.

Simplifying and placing these instructions in the workplace reiterates the importance of safe operations.
