Mine operatorMiner

Mining operations are encouraged to use these self-assessment templates to review their practices and the arrangements in place to manage hazards in the workplace, secure the health and safety of workers and identify areas for improvement.

Pre-WHS mining audit guides and templates

These templates were built under the Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994 and regulations and users will need to align their content against the relevant sections of the Work Health and Safety Act 2020 and Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulations 2022. 

Although some guidance material was prepared by previous departments and divisions, the content is still valid.
