Increasing Staff Knowledge with Supplier Quarry Visit

We have been exploring new ways of our staff and supply chain appreciating each others’ challenges in delivering projects, ensuring our workforce are professionally developed.

A recent example of this was a visit by some of our apprentices, technicians, graduates and support staff to a quarry and asphalt plant to tour the sites, learn about the materials used on projects and how the material is processed. The visit started at Dry Rigg and Arcow Quarries with a site induction followed by a tour where the group were told about high polished stone value (PSV) aggregate and stone geology.

The group then travelled to Cross Green Asphalt Plant to learn about the asphalt, the logistics of rail off load, before the visit concluded with a visit to the laboratory where the group had a lesson understanding asphalt properties and characteristics.

Our staff said they enjoyed the day very much, it was a great experience and opportunity to understand about where the scheme materials come from. Our supply chain appreciated the opportunity to share their challenges in delivering material to our projects and shared the visit on their Twitter feed.
