LETTERS TO THE EDITOR:- "QUARRY SAFETY PLEA"
school holidays starting for most next week I would like to appeal
to parents to ensure their children stay safe - by staying out of
quarries this summer.
Already this year, two teenage boys have been killed after entering
A 15 year old
drowned in a quarry in Derbyshire, whilst an 18 year old fell to his
death in a quarry in Warwickshire.
Both quarries were old workings protected by fences.
The danger is very real and with a warm summer expected the Mineral
Products Association is raising awareness to try and prevent any
more tragic deaths.
The message is simple Stay Safe … Stay Out.
It is not only
illegal to trespass in quarries, but it is also extremely dangerous.
Our members take their responsibilities seriously. Many liaise with
local schools to deliver the safety message, they’re in regular
contact with the emergency services and regularly check their
perimeter fencing. Some sites even use CCTV and security guards.
But perhaps more importantly, we need the help of parents, teachers
and youth workers. Please keep your children safe by ensuring
that they are aware of the dangers posed by trespassing in your
local quarry." said Simon Van Der Byl Executive Director
Mineral Products Association
