Clay Quarry Managers Refresher Day Course

The Clay Quarry Managers Refresher course was designed in response to The Quarry Regulations 1999, which stipulates that quarry managers need to demonstrate competence.

The aim of this course is to provide candidates with a refresher on issues of site safety, occupational health, environmental impact, geotechnical aspects of the extraction process and quarry design, that will assist them in the management of clay quarries, under the Quarries Regulations, 1999.

Attendees are asked to ensure that they are familiar with the following information prior to attending the course:

  1. Site management structure
  2. Date of last review/audit of Health & Safety Document
  3. Latest revision of E&T Rules
  4. Date of Quarry Design
  5. Date of last Geotechnical Assessment
  6. General information on their quarry, e.g. geology, excavation process, volumes of excavation

As the majority of courses available centre around hard rock quarrying, this course was designed specifically for clay quarries.
