It’s official. Hillhead, the world’s biggest quarrying exhibition, has sold out. With more than 500 exhibitors, exciting product demonstrations and 18,500 visitors at the bigger and better event, IQ members will earn valuable continuing professional development (CPD) when they attend the show.
Simon began his talk with the worrying statistic of 3 fatal accidents in quarries in 2017, over a 7-week period. He gave a brief outline of the circumstances surrounding each accident. He went on to state that he could not give full details of the incidents as investigations were still ongoing but HSE viewed it as being important to get brief details out into the public domain to try and avoid any re-occurrences.
The countdown to the biggest quarrying exhibition of its kind in the world has begun and the Institute of Quarrying (IQ) is proud to be supporting Hillhead 2018.
