Everyone finds life tough sometimes – no matter what the industry. Quarrying workplaces are no exception. These environments present their own challenges: working outdoors in all weather; operating machinery for extended periods of time; a weary drive home after a long shift; the tricky balancing act between long work hours and family life. This section is dedicated to hard-working quarry workers across Australia, and proudly supported by South Australia's Mining and Quarrying Occupational Health and Safety Committee (MAQOSHC). Here is a selection of articles to help you and your family cope with life's ups and downs:


MAQOSHC proactively supports and promotes work, health and safety and best hygiene practices, with a mandated aim to prevent injury and disease within the South Australian mining and quarrying sector. They're committed to improving the safety of mining and quarrying workplaces, and this includes raising awareness about the importance of emotional resilience and wellbeing among workers. www.maqohsc.sa.gov.au
