Abstract Quarrying is one of the most dangerous industries in which to work. An initiative launched in 2000 in the United Kingdom has succeeded in greatly reducing the number of accidents in this sector. This article highlights some of the key points of the initiative based on cooperation, workers' involvement and training, and discusses how they could be possibly applied to other sectors.
