    The dangers of quarrying


    A quarry in the UK is a dangerous place to work. According to statistics from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), since 2000 over 3250 workers have suffered an injury after having an accident in a quarry. Of these 3250 cases, 27 resulted in death.

    The main causes of injuries in the quarrying industry include:

    • Falls from heights

    Platforms and ladders at quarries are origins of accidents, especially if debris has been left on a walkway, or a ladder is not secure. Falls from a height can result in musculoskeletal injuries and personal injury.

    • Dust

    Dust is created at most points during quarrying. This can be problematic as dust is one of the main causes of asthma, resulting in symptoms such as tightness in your chest, wheezing, and coughing.

    • Noise

    Hearing can be seriously damaged, and this can even develop into hearing loss due to the noise present when working while quarrying.

    • Vehicles

    The HSE states that 40 per cent of all quarry related accidents, and 60 per cent of all quarry deaths, are attributed to transport. Poor signage, uneven road surfaces, and poor weather conditions, are just some factors behind quarry related injuries that involve vehicles.
