The Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulations 2022 (WHS Mines Regulations) require the mine operator to give the regulator a work health and safety report each quarter; this replaces the monthly status report forms (MSRF) that were previously submitted to the Department.
The quarterly report is to contain the information as specified in Schedule 25 of the WHS Mines Regulations and is required to be submitted to the regulator via the Safety Regulation System (SRS) no later than 15 days after the end of the quarter to which the report relates. The first quarterly status report to be submitted will cover the three-month period from 1 April 2022 to 30 June 2022, and is due by 15 July 2022.
By 30 June 2022 SRS will be updated to ensure that it complies with these requirements, and relevant label changes e.g. ‘Monthly Status’ changed to ‘Status Report’ have been made across SRS.
Users will notice changes when lodging a ‘new’ Status Report, including being prompted to make a selection between the following two options:
Selecting option two will allow users to submit the new quarterly status report as required under the WHS Mines Regulations. Selecting the first option will allow for the submission of any outstanding MSRFs as were required prior to WHS commencement.
The following is a summary of the changes made to SRS and the information required to be provided in the Status Report as per Schedule 25 of the WHS Mines Regulations.
Note - It is important that injuries/illnesses are not entered twice into this summary. Account for the injury/illness under which the first work status timeline entry was made. For example, if the worker was first on lost time days, the injury should be counted as a lost time injury provided the injury occurred in the reporting period.
All injuries that resulted in lost time or alternate duties for the reporting period will be listed here as well as any ‘Carry Over Injuries’ from the previous quarter.
For all injuries that are listed for the reporting period, ensure that all rostered days from accident start date to the end of the reporting period are included.
For example – Reporting Period Apr-Jun 2022, Accident Date 24 April 2022, days to report is to include rostered days from 25 April up until 30 June 2022 (if applicable).
