Providing a Product of Exceptional Quality
Mississippi Sand has quickly emerged as a leading provider in silica sand. We recognize the importance of product quality and consistency, which is why we have staffed a full time Quality Control Manager. Our Quality Control Manager completes a strict schedule of material sampling and testing, which includes gathering samples on an hourly basis during production. Those samples are then tested to ensure that API specifications are being met.
Safety is a Priority at Mississippi Sand
Mississippi Sand is committed to providing a safe environment for our employees, customers, contractors and business partners. As part of this commitment, we have developed a safety plan specific to our facility. In addition, every Mississippi Sand employee must be Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) certified and attend an annual refresher course to reiterate safe working practices. Mandatory safety meetings are also held on a weekly basis to discuss general safety topics and to address any safety concerns. Mississippi Sand proactively hosts safety tours for local police, fire and EMS personnel to familiarize them with our facility and working practices.
Mississippi Sand recently received a commendation by the Southeast Missouri Mine Safety Association for No Lost Time Accidents.
