Snapshot of injury and incident data provided to WorkSafe for the minerals sector.

Following the introduction of the Work Health and Safety Act 2020 in Q1 2022 and due to new reporting requirements, the Quarterly performance snapshots from Q2 2022 to Q1 2023 are not being published as compiling a snapshot requires 12 months of data. All of the reports published from Q2 2023 onward will follow the new requirements.
