Videos

The Quarry Safety Series was prepared by the Authority with Roadstone Dublin Ltd. Videos show how each operation could be carried out safely and how easily and tragically each operation can go wrong without correct procedures. These videos are accompanied by a Tool Box Talks guide.

The Safequarry YouTube channel provides simple videos on slips, trips and falls, described as "ideal for use in toolbox talks, an induction process or as part of a safety training or awareness event". There is no spoken element to these videos that convey the message without narration. The HSA Youtube Channel has a Quarries Playlist that contains the videos below that run on Flash player or they can be played on Windows Media player below
