Legislation on occupational health and safety applies in all sectors of the quarrying industry often presenting managers and other responsible persons with difficulties of interpretation. This book aims to present the main points of quarry legislation in a readable form.
The legislation is presented according to the impact of the Act or Regulation on the everyday working of a quarry beginning with those having the broadest scope. The discussion of each piece of legislation makes reference to the relevant Approved Codes of Practice and Guidance where they exist and in some cases is illustrated through court rulings.
