KSA Kearney Cement Silo Audit
The KSA Kearney Silo Auditing process is the only one of its kind. It has taken years to develop, with the assistance of various
consultants in their areas of expertise. We found this process necessary to meet the changing demands being placed on plant operators and managers, to the ever changing requirements of legislation being placed upon them i.e:
- Safety, Health and Welfare at work act 2005 – Link
- Safety, Health and Welfare at work (General Application Regulations) 2007 – Link
- Safety, Health and Welfare at work (Quarrying) Regulations Draft 2007
These place particular emphasis for responsibility on plant operators in terms of proper inspection and maintenance of equipment. This process applies in particular to storage silos and its protective equipment and gives us a procedure for inspection and when implemented will ensure compliance with legislation. Under the KSA process documents, we hold all records for 5 years in accordance with applicable legislation.
