Make sure you're up to speed with the IHSA manual on safe work practices for the aggregates industry.
This manual provides aggregate workers with guidelines for performing their work safely. With 26 chapters, this is a comprehensive health and safety resource. It covers not only common worksite hazards but also hazards specific to the aggregates industry such as:
- Explosives and Blasting
- Crushing, Screening, and Washing Operations
- Shovel, Crane, and Dragline Operations
- Front-end Loaders
- Haulage Trucks
- Haulage Roads
- Stockpiling and Dumping Procedures.
The basis for this document is the former Mines and Aggregates Safety and Health Association’s Mining & Aggregates Safe Work Practices. All personnel in the aggregates industry should read, understand, and use these rules in their everyday work practices.
