Senior miners appointed to Qld safety board

Four senior miners with more than 70 combined years of experience have joined the body that sets and maintains the standards for important safety roles in Queensland’s mines. The appointment was announced to Queensland’s Board of Examiners, which determines the qualifications and experience required for critical safety roles at mines, assesses applicants and issues certificates.

The appointees are Angela Dow, a Daunia Mine shift compliance supervisor who holds an Open Cut Examiner Certificate of Competency; Stephen Watts, a Construction, Forestry, Maritime and Energy Union Industry safety and health representative; Leslie Marlborough, who holds First Class and Second Class Mine Managers Certificates of Competency; and Matthew Way, Oaky North Mine site senior executive. They have joined eight current board members, as of Thursday, 4 June.

“The new members will bring a fresh and diverse mix of technical skills, insight and contemporary mining knowledge that will be critical in maintaining the high standard of the board’s work. I’d like to thank the outgoing members for their efforts in helping to protect the safety of Queensland miners,” said Dr Anthony Lynham, Mines Minister.

Lynham also acknowledged the contributions made by the outgoing members — Dr Brian White, Greg Dalliston and Scott Cochrane.
