  • Site Worker Health hazards including dust, noise, hazardous substances, psychosocial hazards 
  • Exposure monitoring and health surveillance
  • Effective management of worker health hazards
  • What should be in your Worker Health Plan 

Participants will also be given practical examples of how small scale quarries have achieved significant safety improvement through managing worker health hazards.
