Quarries and Water Safety

Quarries and Water Safety
22/07/2021

You turn up to an abandoned quarry on a hot summer’s day, it is nice and quiet, the water is clear, and it looks inviting.

Adventure awaits…

There’s nothing quite like taking a dip into open water and feeling a massive rush of endorphins, but in reality, adventure does not await when dealing with water safety.

85% of accidental drownings occur at open water sites.

You see a ‘danger, do not no swim’ sign amongst the picturesque foliage, do NOT ignore this, this sign has been put there for a reason.

Quarries, particularly abandoned and disused quarries are very dangerous places, they have several hidden dangers. Deep water, stone-cold water, submerged and abandoned machinery, hidden current, pollution, and dangerous algae to name a few.

Signs are used to inform people of the dangers present in and around the water they are interacting with.

Members of the public must keep away from quarries and do not trespass.

Quarries continue to be the leading locations for accidental drowning and unintended entry into the water.

Swimming in quarries is extremely dangerous.

Signs are used to inform people of the dangers present in and around the water they are interacting with.

Our highly visible and easy-to-read quarry signs help aggregate and quarry companies keep their premises safe and secure. By their nature, quarries are extremely dangerous places to work in and visit. There are a number of hazards to contend with, such as falling rocks, deep water, and industrial machinery, and we have health and safety signs for all of these hazards. We can help you to highlight the dangers present in quarries that may not be evident to visitors, especially those who are on your premises without permission or when the site may be closed.

We supply signage for quarries that complies with Quarry Regulations 1999 and conforms to British Standards BS5499. Our range of signs includes quarry safety signs, warnings signs as well as custom signs with site-specific graphics.
