Hiring Practices
Guarding Processes for the sand and gravel industry
Processes for “critical” job tasks
Forms and checklists

The successful proponent will have access to the ASGA current Safety Tool Kit and some of its Best Practices.  These will be used on a starting platform and guideline to further develop Best Practices for the industry.

The successful proponent will be expected to provide monthly updates and reviews to the Safety Committee.  Additional to this any meetings required to collaborate or review materials it will the responsibility of the proponent to coordinate and conduct these meetings.  The ASGA will make available a meeting room and conference call equipment if required.
These documents upon final development will be available online or in hard copy to all ASGA members.

Aggregate Facts

Did you know that for straight gravel hauls with minimal traffic, the price of aggregate increases $0.15 per tonne for every mile from the extraction site? Close to market reserves is one way the aggregate industry reduces environmental footprints and risk of accident.
