Quarry and alluvial mine operations notification and reporting
Mining and tunnelling operations quarterly report form
A new web-based form for extractives quarterly report submissions is now available to use. From October 2020 all mining and tunnelling operators will be required to submit their quarterly reports using the new form. Operators are encouraged to submit their quarterly report within two weeks of the end of each quarter.
Mine and tunnel plans
If you are a mining or tunnelling operation, the Health and Safety at Work (Mining Operations and Quarrying Operations) Regulations 2016 require that you send WorkSafe a copy of a mine plan at least every year. If you have ceased mining or finished constructing the tunnel, then you need to send WorkSafe a plan of the completed work. Plans should contain certain information and be drawn on a certain scale.
High risk activity notification
High risk activities required to be notified under Regulation 229 are specified in Schedule 7 of the Regulations. The high risk activities notification requirement allows us to assess whether the operator will be able to effectively manage the activity prior to the activity commencing.
