    True or False? Nearly everyone we know uses shortcuts to get the job done.  Answer: Generally yes.  Even though we all use shortcuts in our daily routines, we must be aware of the dangers that shortcuts expose us to. There are two ways to work. Often the safe way is not the fastest or easiest way.

    Teamwork is a cooperative or coordinated effort by a group of persons working together as a team in the pursuit of a common cause. Safety is our common cause. Safety procedures are developed from the combined experience of people working in conditions like yours. There is no regulation or law enforcing working as a team – but personnel records will show how well you play with others!

    MSHA requires employers to require employees to wear eye and face protection from flying particles, molten metal, liquid chemicals, acids or caustic liquids and other hazardous chemicals, chemical gases or vapors, or potentially injurious light radiation. Over 1000 eye and face injuries occur in the workplace every day. According to OSHA, these injuries cost more than $300 million per year in lost production time, medical expenses, and worker compensation. Many of these injuries result in severe pain and suffering with some resulting in partial or total blindness. Eye and face injuries can be prevented if the hazards are recognized and with the proper selection and use of eye and face protection.

    Repeated exposure to elevated levels of noise can cause hearing loss. Once it occurs, hearing loss is permanent and cannot be reversed. MSHA requires employers to evaluate noise level exposures in the workplace. If exposure exceeds the Action Level of 85 dBA/8-hour time weighted average (TWA), the miner must be enrolled in a hearing conservation program and offered hearing protection. If the permissible exposure level (PEL) exceeds 90 dBA/8-hour time weighted average then hearing protection use is mandatory. Noise induced hearing loss can be prevented. Use of hearing protection is equally applicable at home as it is in the workplace.

    Quarriers use many different types of mobile equipment in their daily operations. Workers should be trained in the proper use, including mounting and dismounting, prior to utilizing equipment. It is important to know the locations of stairs and ladders for climbing as well as handles and bars for gripping. Failing to maintain three points of contact with the equipment has resulted in numerous injuries. The three points of contact rule is simple —always maintain one hand and two feet, or two hands and one foot, when climbing or descending ladders, trucks and equipment. When climbing a ladder, you must have both hands free and face the ladder.

    Over- exposure to respirable crystalline silica particles can lead to serious, sometimes fatal illnesses including silicosis, lung cancer, tuberculosis (in those with silicosis), and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In addition, silica exposure has been linked to other illnesses including renal disease and other cancers. Silicosis is a progressive disease and there is no cure upon its onset, thus minimizing your exposure to respirable crystalline silica is the key to prevention.

    Exposure to crystalline silica often occurs as part of common workplace operations involving cutting, sawing, drilling, grinding/sanding and crushing of natural and engineered stone products such as granite and slate and also in the quarrying of these materials. Over-exposure can lead to serious, sometimes fatal illnesses including silicosis, lung cancer, tuberculosis (in those with silicosis) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The best method to prevent a crystalline silica exposure related disease is to minimize exposure to crystalline silica.

    Hand tools are tools that are powered manually. Hand tools include anything from axes to wrenches. Hand tool operation influences the daily lives of all workers. The greatest hazards posed by hand tools result from misuse and improper maintenance. As a result, it is necessary that everyone be aware of safe hand tool practices and follows those practices. Without the use of hand tools, the completion of our work would be nearly impossible. Yet, as vital as they are, hand tools are often the cause of serious accidents. All too frequently, hand tools are used improperly or when they are defective. Since we use hand tools continually, it is important they be used properly. We are going to briefly cover proper use today.

    Operating a wire saw is a specialized task that can be safely performed only with adequate training and experience. Wire saw operators are also responsible for basic upkeep of the machine and safety in its operation.

    Job Description: A wire saw operator uses a wire saw machine to cut large blocks of stone out from the quarry.  Wire saw machines are large machines that use diamond-impregnated beads on a cable to cut through various types of stone. Wire saws are also used for squaring blocks of stone before transporting them to the production plant.

    Stone slabs (aka ‘loaves’) are separated from the quarry wall and shelf by a method known as tipping.  Slab tipping is a specialized task that can be safely performed after adequate training.  Slab tipping is accomplished by inserting a specialized wedge (e.g., piston jacks, metal cushions filled with compressed water) into the saw gap to open it enough so the slab can be pushed from above or pulled from below by machine onto a bed of rubble previously prepared on the quarry floor. At this point the loaf is sub-divided into blocks that meet the customer’s size and characteristics requirements.  Prevent the movement of stone during secondary cutting operations.  Material to be cut, other than hanging material, must be positioned or blocked to prevent movement which would endanger persons in the work area. Secondary segregation must be performed from a location which would not expose persons to danger.

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) are Department of Labor agencies. MSHA regulates roughly 12,000 mining and processing locations. OSHA regulates employers everywhere else. Some federal funds support optional state OSHA approved programs. In California, the Department of Occupational Safety and Health inspects mines, but it uses non-federal funds for this activity. States may enforce mine safety but they cannot contradict MSHA.

    The authority of the two agencies is mutually exclusive. Occasionally, mine inspectors will claim a right to inspect a location not previously considered a mine. Similarly, OSHA inspectors may claim jurisdiction at a site MSHA regulates. In order to minimize jurisdictional conflicts, MSHA and OSHA signed a memorandum of understanding in 1979 whereby the two agencies designated which types of facilities are and are not mines. 

    However, the agreement did not anticipated every situation. There are frequent occasions when the law, agency policy and legal decisions must be consulted to evaluate which agency has jurisdiction.

    Likewise, the laws and regulations of each agency are different. Both agencies have extensive rules to prevent injuries, but the approach and requirements for each are distinct.

    Unexpected rock movement can cause injuries, endanger lives, and can potentially result in a mine catastrophe. Even relatively shallow quarries can experience devastating consequences from slope failure. Using drones can help monitor conditions.

    Exposure to cracks and seams are common to natural stone mining operations. Strict evaluation of the structural integrity of the stone deposit should be made before entering an area. The entire crew shares this responsibility (see something, say something). Auditing and team work combined with pre-shift workplace examinations are the tools that everyone needs to utilize in "following the cracks" to avoid the hazard of falling rock.

    Slips, trips and falls represent approximately 15% of all accidental deaths and approximately 25% of reported injuries. Slippery surfaces often take you by surprise. Wet, greasy or muddy floors are dangerous under any conditions, but they present special hazards when you’re pushing a hand truck or moving stone slabs. Maintaining walking and working surfaces free from hazards can prevent slip, trip and fall accidents.
