Opportunity to give your feedback on the draft code of practice for emergency preparedness for mines in WA.
|Date:||Thursday, 05 January 2017|
The Department of Mines and Petroleum is reminding people to provide their feedback on the draft code of practice for emergency preparedness for mines in Western Australia.
Released for comment late last year, the draft code provides guidance on emergency response systems used in surface and underground mines and quarries and developing and evaluating safe work procedures for such systems.
Mines Safety Director and State Mining Engineer Andrew Chaplyn said the code aims to enhance the planning, implementation and maintenance of emergency systems.
"This code is a tool to inform and guide those developing risk-based emergency management systems, and has had significant input from emergency response coordinators and trainers," Mr Chaplyn said.
"We encourage industry to review the draft and provide us with their feedback."
The draft code of practice is available for public comment until 12 noon, Friday 3 February 2017.
More information, including a copy of the draft code of practice, is available online.
