Call for expressions of interest:
Mine Safety Advisory Council Chairperson

Expressions of interest are sought from suitably qualified people to be considered for appointment as the independent chairperson of the NSW Mine Safety Advisory Council. The chairperson and members of the council are appointed by the Minister for Resources under the Work Health and Safety (Mines and Petroleum Sites) Act 2013. The council meets four to six times each year.
The council’s function is to provide advice to the Minister for Resources on matters relating to health and safety in the NSW mining and extractives industry. The council membership is made up of high level stakeholders representing employers and workers within the industry.

The MSAC Chairperson should be independent of mining industry stakeholders. It is not essential to have WHS or mining industry experience, although it would be beneficial.

For further information visit the NSW Mines Safety Advisory Council webpage.

Expressions of interest close: 5pm Friday, 31 August 2018.
