TITLE
Managing contractors during major construction
ARTICLE
Careful management of contractors throughout the process of installing an asphalt plant at this quarry has ensured that the project has run smoothly and safely.

A project co-ordinator was appointed to act as a point of contact for contractors and Bardon employees. Before work began, the workforce visited other recently constructed asphalt plants to learn from the experiences of site managers, particularly in respect of health and safety issues.

Contractors, all of whom hold a quarry passport, were given a full site induction and take part in weekly progress meetings where health and safety is a key area for discussion.
