Giving back and being visible to the community is important for Upstone Materials Inc.
Every year, Upstone hosts their annual Kid’s Day where local 5th grade geology students have the opportunity to learn exactly what we do. This year’s event will be held on May 22nd & 23rd. Our Safety Coordinator, Greg Poupore, along with our Management team educate the students on the geology of the quarries, jobs available, site safety, and environmental issues. They are also given a tour of the asphalt and concrete plants, crushing operations, and they even get to see a blast!
Safety Tips when walking through the plant:
- Proper attire: pants, sneakers/boots
- Safety glasses
- Safety vests
