Mining & Quarry Industry Guide to Safety NZ 2016/17 – Released

mining quarryingWith the recent implementation of new health and safety at work regulations across New Zealand, Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with the New Zealand Institute of Safety Management, has released the latest edition of the Mining & Quarry Industry Guide to Safety this year with a featured topic on changes and responsibilities in relation to the new laws.

When it comes to the mining and quarry industry, previous or current regulations are not immune to the fundamental changes that came into effect April this year. These fundamental changes affect all those who are involved in the industry: in underground and surface mines, tunnelling operations, quarries, clay pits and other resource operations.

Apart from the regulation requirements and amendments this year’s guide covers a range of other topics including:

· Emergency Management Requirements.

· Guarding of Belt Conveyors.

· Fatigue Management.

It is important to know where you stand when it comes to health and safety in your workplace. This Guide promotes the importance of fitness, the safety procedures implemented when handling machinery, as well as who’s actually responsible for health and safety operations at work – everyone.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Mining & Quarry Industry Guide to Safety NZ 2016/17. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge to recipients across New Zealand.”
