Registrations are now open for this inaugural event at the Sofitel Darling Harbour, Sydney on 3 and 4 December.

This unmissable event is for Mine Managers, Technical Service Managers and Mining Engineers of underground and open cut collieries, open pits, underground metal mines and large quarries.

Stepping safely into the future focuses on the challenges and solutions facing mine managers in implementing change management and adopting new technology.

The early adoption of remote operating centres, integrated planning, autonomous mining, battery electric vehicles and even artificial intelligence is starting to be implemented in mines throughout New South Wales.

Adoption and implementation of new mining technology promises to offer increased production and efficiency but also presents new challenges and often unforeseen downstream changes.

This seminar will bring together case studies from Mining Engineering Managers who are implementing new technology and the lessons learnt on their journey to date.

Individual attendees may be able to claim the content of this seminar to meet their maintenance of competency for their practising certificates.

Join us. Register before 26 October to take advantage of the early bird discount.

State wide blitz on worker dust risks at quarries

We have launched a state-wide blitz on quarry worker safety - with a specific focus on exposure to dust.

Chief Inspector of Mines, Garvin Burns said quarries across the state could expect to see teams of inspectors turning up at the front gate for inspections without notice.

“Over the next three weeks Resources Regulator inspectors will be going to quarries throughout the state as part of a targeted intervention program to examine how operators are managing dust risks,” Mr Burns said.

“Dust diseases, such as silicosis, are preventable and require appropriate dust controls, atmospheric monitoring and worker health monitoring.

“We know quarries by their very nature can be dusty places to work and this compliance campaign will be directly testing to see if quarry operators have appropriate controls in place to protect the health of their workers from this risk."

We are holding health and safety roadshows for small mines and quarries across NSW during October, November and December 2019.

The roadshows provide information on health and safety, and topics such as learning from disasters, quarry manager practising certificates, mine site welding practices, emergency management and learnings from recent incidents.

These events provide information and resources to the small mines' sector to assist you to maintain safe mining practices and also provide an opportunity for face-to-face engagement with the Regulator.
Registrations have now closed for the Newcastle roadshow on 1 October.
