MPA has launched guidance designed to support members in keeping employees, contractors, suppliers and customers safe as site operations adapt to the restrictions of COVID-19 and become COVID secure.
An A5 pocket guide, using relatable graphics, designed for members to circulate to employees to help them to understand the behaviours that they need to adopt to keep themselves. their families, colleagues and the public safe as they go about their daily work. In addition to the ’10 Rules of Engagement’, the pocket guide covers activities from the time they leave home, through the working day and to their safe return.
An A5 pocket guide with guidance for local managers to assist them as they prepare workplaces for start-up or continuing operation. Outlining the steps managers need to take to help everyone on site maintain social distancing and to mitigate the hazards associated with COVID-19, it includes both practical measures and recommendations on how to reinforce safe behaviours. Copies should be made available to all managers with responsibility for operations and premises.
A more detailed publication aimed at Directors and Managers, this provides guidance on operating safely during the Covid-19 pandemic and provides links to shared members’ resources and important sources of information and updates, including from Government and non-Government organisations. It complements the MPA Managers and Employees pocket guides.
A series of COVID-19 posters are available on Safequarry.com, and will be regularly reviewed and updated as new guidance and information emerges.
