This handbook was conceived at a time when the environmental performance of the quarrying industry was under scrutiny. Many operating companies were looking to implementing environmental management systems and standards such as ISO14001.
It has become even more relevant since the introduction of the Aggregates Levy. Every site manager must strive to be a good neighbour and to establish a good relationship with the local community in addition to complying with many regulations and conditions of planning consents.
