Blast vibration

Blasting is undertaken in a safe, responsible and efficient, on some of our sites, to fracture layers of hard competent rock in order to assist with excavation of the rock.

Prior to any blasting operations taking place, a full assessment of the impact of vibration from blasting must be undertaken to ensure that vibration limits to protect the amenity of local residents are achieved.  Blasting operations operations are strictly controlled with conditions stipulating the frequency and times of blasting, vibration limits and monitoring requirements.
