Modern Quarrying

The UK Quarries Partnership Team (QPT) has produced a new, animated video to highlight health risks to quarry workers. Using animated videos as training aids to illustrate key health and safety messages has been used successfully by the quarrying industry previously, giving the QPT confidence that this approach is an effective way in which to highlight the exposure to silica dust in the workplace.

The QPT members have agreed to work together and/or independently to further increase awareness of the risks associated with the inhalation of dust within the quarrying industry and continue to promote good control practices.

The video tells the story of animated character George, who ignores advice and equipment dangerously exposing him to hazardous workplace dust. George drives mobile plant with windows open and without using air conditioning and he sweeps up spillages in a way that simply spreads dust around. Real-life video footage interspersed in the film, guides workers on how they can take simple steps to perform tasks safely.
