MINING AND QUARRYING REGULATIONS WORKSHOP
With changes to the Health and Safety at Work Act put in place earlier this year, the Act's mining and quarrying regulations now apply to alluvial gold miners and quarries.
Until June 2022, such operations were not included in the regulations brought in in 2015.
Minerals West Coast and WorkSafe will be holding a workshop in Hokitika on Tuesday the 13th of December to explain how to ensure alluvial mines and quarries can operate in line with the regulations.
The workshop will run from 1:00pm through to 5:00pm and will involve a visit to a nearby alluvial gold mine, as well as a presentation from WorkSafe, followed by questions and answers.
Overall the workshop and site visit will aim to get attendants up to speed with regulations and requirements relating to:
Date: Tuesday 13th of December
Location: West’s Rugby Club, 50 Brittan Street, Hokitika
