The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has presented a quarryman with its Distinguished Service Award, after his exceptional efforts in over 35 years of work in the sector, demonstrating the recognition that can come the way of people who use safety signs effectively.

Martin Isles, director of health and safety at the Mineral Products Association, was handed the honour at a ceremony in Hilton Glasgow. He is also the president of the Institute of Quarrying, meaning he is a prominent figure in the industry.

Tom Mullarkey, RoSPA's chief executive, said: "The tremendous contribution that Martin Isles has made to saving lives and reducing injuries in the UK minerals sector is shown by the 83 per cent reduction in reportable injuries he oversaw from 2000-2009."

This award comes after the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health and the Health and Safety Executive announced that they will join forces to host the Innovation in Safety-Small Business Award for a second year.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800739225-ADNFCR
