MPA launches ‘Safer by Association’ at Hillhead 2010

‘SAFER by Association’, the Mineral Products Association’s new site-based health and safety audit package, was launched at Hillhead on 22 June. The package is to be offered free to MPA members to assist them in their quest to deliver a safer, healthier industry, with the ultimate aim of achieving Zero Harm.

Nigel Jackson, MPA chief executive, said: ‘The ‘Safer by Association’ package is designed to help members further improve their health and safety performance and is just one of a series of new tools MPA is developing as part of our mission to achieve Zero Harm.’

The package offers the means for member companies to carry out a health and safety self-audit of their site(s). A range of resources, such as guidance and example procedures, is currently being identified and collated by the MPA, which will allow members to address gaps or shortcomings highlighted by the audit.

MPA will shortly be providing a list of selected external health and safety specialists whose commercial services will be available for members to use for independent audit evaluation. Initially focusing on Health & Safety, future extensions of MPA’s audit package could embrace Environment and Quality.
