Quarry planning for operators of Extractive Sites

All mine and quarry sites have a legal obligation to have an up-to-date mine plan on site, which is an essential component of any operations risk management strategy. History confirms that many incidents and near misses have resulted from poor mine planning and the failure to address identifiable hazards.

The quality of mine plans should be consistent with the size and complexity of the operation and should be prepared by persons with appropriate skills that allow the plan to accurately reflect the completed and proposed workings.
