CEMEX Quarry Operator receives one of the 1st UK Gold Cards

25 June 2014

Ian Bagshawe of CEMEX Dove Holes Quarry has been awarded one of the first ever industry wide gold standard accreditation for highly efficient quarry and mining equipment operators.  The new standard has been launched through a partnership between MP Awards and Finning and aims to recognise the best operators in the country.

Ian is one of four operators to be presented with the award at this year’s, Hillhead exhibition where the new standard will be launched.

Operators must be holders of the MPQC Blue Competency card before attaining the new gold card standard which is about developing operator excellence, delivering efficiency and increasing productivity.  The practical course to obtain the new award is run with the operators on their own sites with the machine they operate and covers a range of different manufacturer’s models.

Ian has been a quarry operative for 16 years and has worked at Dove Holes quarry since 2008. He operates a selection of machinery including the CAT990 at the quarry face, 775 dump truck and 990 for stock re-handling.
