The quarries partnership team members have been drawn from across the quarrying industry and have agreed to work together and/or independently to further increase the awareness of the risks associated with the inhalation of dust within the quarrying industry and continue to promote good control practices.


  • To reduce the incidence of respiratory disease in workers within the quarrying industry by further raising awareness of the risks of exposure via inhalation, to hazardous dusts in the workplace.
  • To improve workers' knowledge concerning exposure to dust in the workplace
  • To share, promote and encourage good control practices in the workplace
  • To bring about a change in attitudes and behaviours to workplace 'dust'.
