The final draft of the Best Practice Guidelines for Health and Safety in Opencast Mines, Alluvial Mines and Quarries is now available:
The document comprises 190 pages and is very comprehensive.
However, it is still a draft. Some of you may have submissions and the WorkSafe team will appreciate any feedback. But, rather than have dozens of suggestions submitted directly from the industry, please forward your submissions to The Institute of Quarrying attention Gordon Laing firstname.lastname@example.org who will combine these into one submission.
The deadline for submissions is by 5pm on Wednesday 15th October 2014.
