Roadshow to dig into health and safety at small mines and quarries

New South Wales (NSW) small mines and quarries will have the opportunity to dig into best health and safety practices at the state’s Resources Regulator’s roadshow. Over the next three months, the regulator will visit 15 sites, including Broken Hill, Dubbo, Orange, Queanbeyan, Port Macquarie and Wentworth, delivering key information on learning from recent incidents and disasters, quarry manager practising certificates, mine site welding and emergency management.

It will also cover hazard management and control and the process for reporting or notifying the regulator about safety incidents, according to NSW Resources Regulator Chief Inspector of Mines Garvin Burns. “The roadshow has a particular focus on small-scale mines and quarries because we recognise that resourcing and preparing things like mine safety management plans can be challenging for smaller companies,” Burns said.

More information about the roadshow can be found via the regulator’s website.
