CONGRATULATIONS! to all of our folks at the SIS Quarry.

Southern Illinois Stone Company has been awarded a Rock Solid Excellence in Safety Award by the Illinois Association of Aggregate Producers (IAAP). The Rock Solid Safety Awards program recognizes safety and health excellence among IAAP members who work in the Illinois aggregates industry. The site is judged on thirteen different criteria including approved training program, personal exposure sampling, pre-shift inspection, Hazard Communication Program, and safety and health system reviews.

In addition to meeting all the standards for the Gold level, the applicant must also have Zero MSHA reportable/OSHA recordable injuries or illnesses; Zero final MSHA elevated actions or OSHA citation for a Serious violation; and MSHA Rate of Violations Per Inspection Day (VPID) less than the national average for our type of operation.
