Reporting monthly safety performance information (status report) for mining operations

Monthly status reports for mining operations must be submitted online using the Safety Regulation System (SRS).

What is reported?

The monthly status report requires accident information to be reported as well as the average numbers of employees and contractors and total hours worked for that month.

Specific reporting requirements include:

  • the names of employees who have been injured in previous months and are still off work, or have not returned to their duties (as they were being performed at the time of the accident) by the start of the month being reported
  • the number of days lost for each employee, and his or her work status
  • the average number of company and contractor employees and total hours worked by company and contractor employees that month
  • hours worked as defined by the Mines Safety and Inspection Levy Regulations 2010.

Who is responsible for reporting?

The manager of a mine must submit a monthly status report for each calendar month. The report must be submitted as soon as practicable after the end of each month. The information in the report provides data for analysis by Resources Safety, and is used to generate industry safety performance indicators.

It is a requirement that a report is submitted whether or not there has been a reportable accident during the month.
