Jackson Valley Quarry is Flawless!

November 18, 2014 | By | No Comments

Jackson Valley Quarry received an MSHA inspection starting yesterday Thursday 11/13 and ending today, Friday 11/14.

NO CITATIONS were issued during this inspection!!!!  As you all know it is very difficult to go through an MSHA inspection without receiving a citation.

The inspector was extremely impressed with the condition of the plant and equally impressed with the positive attitudes of all the miners he spoke to.

This is a great accomplishment for all the troops at JVQ. Congratulations!!!

Chuck Simpson
Safety Manager

George Reed partners with FHWA to demonstrate ‘safety edge’ on pavements

September 2, 2014 | By | No Comments

CalAPA member George Reed Inc. partnered with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and local agencies to conduct a demonstration last week of a “safety edge” pavement treatment.

The Aug. 28 paving demonstration near Sonora in Tuolumne County was attended by more than 30 industry and agency personnel who wanted to get an up-close look at the paving equipment and technique that creates a 30-degree angled edge to pavement shoulders.

The FHWA, as part of its “Every Day Counts” safety and efficiency

Observers watch a ‘safety edge’ demonstration last week in Tuolumne County.
efforts, are promoting the implementation of the sloped pavement edge at shoulders of rural roads as a safety measure. The agency says the edge can be less jarring for motorists who drift off the road and over-correct, veering into oncoming traffic or off the road.

While no exact figures exist, Ken Kochevar of the FHWA said that perhaps 300 such fatal accidents per year in California are as a result of vehicles leaving the roadway due to abrupt pavement shoulder changes, which are sometimes caused when shoulder backing is eroded.

Last week’s paving demonstration took place on a local road in Tuolume County, and local, state and federal agency personnel participated. For the paving demonstration, the George Reed paving crew had two different attachments bolted on to the paving machine.
