NSW Mine Safety Regulator Releases Quarterly Safety Report
The NSW Resources Regulator has released its Quarterly Safety Report for April to June 2022 to assist mine and petroleum site operators meet their duties and obligations under the state’s workplace health and safety laws.
The NSW Resources Regulator said, ‘as a high-hazard regulator, we focus on compliance with legislative requirements associated with principal and other high-risk hazards. ‘Roads or other vehicle operating areas’, ‘fires or explosion’ and ‘air quality or dust and other airborne contaminants are hazards that regularly feature in incident notifications to the Regulator.’
The report shows that ‘total incident notifications received by principal hazard’ increased from 161 to 176, representing a slight drop from the quarterly average of 179 recorded in the last four quarters.
