The Quarries National Joint Advisory Committee - QNJAC - is a tripartite body comprising quarrying and extractive industry representatives of employers; employees; the government regulator (Health & Safety Executive, HSE); professional membership bodies; trade unions; and industry training/educational organisations.

The ‘engine room’ of QNJAC comprises a series of sub-committees and working groups which focus on subject areas or projects, as required. Working groups look at regulations along with innovations, accident and incident reports, best practice, and new technologies to produce updated guidance.

Approved QNJAC output is principally in the form of Guidance documents which, when confirmed by HSE’s Publications Governance Group, are published on the QNJAC website. This guidance along with self-audits can help employers understand where they are in relation to regulations, help create action plans to fill gaps and use the new guidance to apply the regulation in today’s working environment.

QNJAC is made up of volunteers from quarrying and related products industry, everyone involved are passionate about this work and the overall aim, is to help everyone working in this great industry, stay safe.
