Regulator rejects WHS undertaking given by mining company

A mining company will be forced to go back to the drawing board after the NSW Resources Regulator rejected a WHS undertaking given by the company.

The WHS undertaking was given in relation to a June 2019 incident, where an underground mine worker suffered serious injuries after his foot became trapped in a scraper conveyor.

The coal miner submitted a draft WHS undertaking proposal to the Regulator on 3 December 2021; however, the Resources Regulator rejected the WHS undertaking.

The Resources Regulator said “the WHS undertaking does not satisfactorily reflect the objective seriousness of the alleged WHS offence nor does it bring with it both general and specific deterrence commensurate with that objective seriousness as prosecution proceedings would.”
