With the inception of the Quarry Regulations 1999 www.hse.gov.uk many systems within the quarrying industry that were carried out routinely had to be modified. No longer could the systems be informal and as a result they now have to be reported formally. We can devise systems suited to your company requirements to ensure your Quarry Managers continue to comply with the Quarry Regulations. We can also advise on all aspects of the Quarry Regulations 30-38.

Appraisal of Excavation of Tips
    
Regulation 32 states that all excavations and tips (including lagoons and stockpiles) should be subjected to an appraisal by a competent person on a regular basis dependant on the risk posed by the significant hazard. In addition, if a significant change occurs within the quarry ie a sinking is created; a face advance direction changed; a new geological feature exposed that was not anticipated, then an appraisal should be carried out. This has to be carried out by a competent person ie a trained operational person, a geologist or a geotechnical engineer. The appraisal will determine whether a geotechnical assessment is required or not. We have experience in carrying out appraisals of hard rock and sand and gravel sites.
