Midland Quarry Products pass 2 million man hours without a lost-time incident (LTI) at Cliffe Hill Quarry
MIDLAND Quarry Products are celebrating the achievement of one of the UK’s largest quarries reaching the milestone of 2 million man hours worked without a lost-time incident (LTI) occurring.
The team based at Cliffe Hill Quarry, Ellistown, Leicestershire, are now approaching nine years since the last employee LTI, and four years since the last contractor LTI.
In reaching this milestone the Cliffe Hill team have shown that by acting responsibly, making safety personal and taking time to plan their work, accidents can be prevented by an engaged and competent workforce.
Simon Willis, MQP’s managing director, said: ‘We are very proud of our safety record, but recognize there is more to do to achieve our goal of Zero Harm.’
To celebrate the 2 million man hours, everyone involved received a gift of an all-weather jacket.
Mr Willis added that the LTI achievement was a great end to an exciting year which saw Cliffe Hill host an industry visit by HSE chair Judith Hackett, and MQP top the Environment Agency CRC league table for energy reduction.
