WorkSafe quarry visit discussion

MinEx is getting numerous phone calls from quarries that have been visited by WorkSafe, as the agency increasingly enforces the Health and Safety at Work Act that came into effect two years ago.

It doesn’t appear that AQA members are among the ‘rogue operators’ presenting the most risk to the extractive sector, but we are keen to hear your views if you have been ‘visited’.

  1. Do you estimate that your WorkSafe visit was fair?
  2. Did the inspector exhibit the sort of ‘industry knowledge and experience’ you would expect?
  3. Was the ‘process’ relatively easy without being burden on production and resources?
