Consultation description

This consultative document sets out proposals from HSENI to approve for use in Northern Ireland an updated Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) on “Health and Safety at Quarries”, published by the Health and Safety Executive in Great Britain.

The Approved Code of Practice and guidance provides practical guidance on how to comply with the requirements of the Quarries Regulations 1999 (the relevant legislation in Northern Ireland, to which the ACOP can be read across, is the Quarries Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2006).

 It is relevant to operators and duty holders responsible for health and safety in quarries and those people, including contractors, working in quarries.
