Quarry Water is a Stone-Cold Killer

The Quarry Products Association NI has worked for a number of months with the Departments of Environment and Justice  and the Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (PCSPs) to put together an educational awareness campaign. The campaign, “Quarry water is a stone-cold killer Stay out, stay alive” warns of the dangers of swimming in disused quarries and open water.


The team has designed a poster and informative leaflet that can be placed in schools, leisure centres, community centres and youth groups. This material will also be circulated on a number of social media sites, including Facebook and on websites, including NI Direct.

The poster and leaflet are available to download from the NI Direct site at

Safety workshops a great success

The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) in conjunction with Quarry Products Association Northern Ireland (QPANI) and Institute of Quarrying (IoQ) held a series of workshops specifically for excavator drivers who load out at the quarry face and those persons responsible for supervising this operation.  The Institute of Quarrying also recognised this training and awarded one hour of Continuous Professional Development and issued certificates.


The workshops were delivered across Northern Ireland at a number of sites to small local groups to limit the time the workers were out of the quarry.  The subject material was presented by Ken Logan and Brian Pryce of HSENI. The HSENI and QPANI Health and Safety Committee have developed a series of similar workshops for 2015 that will focus on the priority risk areas identified by both organisations.

Members attend workshop events hosted by Acheson & Glover, P Clarke

and Quinn Building Products.
