The Illinois Department of Natural Resources Office of Mines and Minerals, in cooperation with the Illinois Association of Aggregate Producers’ Safety Committee, will conduct a FREE seminar designed to help you be better prepared to supervise all activities related to explosive handling and blasting at your quarry. Register to attend below.
Antony Lacey, IDNR Office of Mines and Minerals’ blasting expert, will help you understand:
Many quarries now hire blasting service companies and are dependent on these companies for their knowledge of blasting and blasting regulations. However, when mine personnel are unaware of the guidelines that a blaster is required to operate under, a conflict or misunderstanding can develop, and safety may be jeopardized.
This informative seminar does not meet the licensing requirements to obtain an Illinois Surface Aggregate Blasting License. Therefore, no licenses will be issued for attending this seminar.
The IAAP’s Safety Committee looks forward to providing this valuable information for you. Contact IAAP for more information.
