In November MQP held its second Driver Safety & Environmental Awareness Days at Cliffe Hill Quarry. Over the course of the two days key representatives from Network Rail, Towergate, Volvo, Arco, E-ON, Highways Agency, NWL Green Footprints, Motorway Police and two driver training providers ran short presentations and workshops all aimed at highlighting "Health, Safety & Environment" issues specific to road haulage in the quarrying and construction industry.
Hopefully all who attended will take some knowledge away that will make them think a little more about how/what they are doing, and if only one person does something that prevents an incident or saves energy, then the days have proved their worth.
The two days were open to all in the industry and hopefully this event will continue to grow and be adopted by other companies.
