More than 100 delegates from the minerals and construction industries attended a two-day health and safety event in Huddersfield.
Johnsons Wellfield Quarries at Crosland Hill hosted the event, which aimed to build on the progress made by the industries in reducing fatalities, improving the safety culture and developing competency throughout the workforce.
The event included sessions showcasing best practice in areas such as lifting and towing operations, hazard awareness, mobile plant inspection, managing emergency spills and operating in confined spaces.
Safety training specialist Juice Learning, based at Armitage Bridge, also ran a session at the event. Activities on the second day were run in association with the Mineral Products Association.
The event was opened and closed by James Berry, managing director of Wellhouse parent the Myers group. Richard Noble, an inspector with the Health and Safety Executive, also spoke.
