Traffic Management in Quarries

Traffic Management in Quarries 3/12/13
The Confederation of UK Coal Producers (CoalPro), the trade organisation representing most of the deep and surface coal producers, has produced a comprehensive guidance document on traffic management in quarries. Though written with the open cast coal industry in mind, the principles are applicable to all sizes and types of quarrying operation. The guide focuses on safe workplaces; safe vehicles; safe driving and plant operations. In short, this guidance represents good practice in managing the interaction of heavy mobile plant & transport effectively.
