Regulations Chapter 9: Mines
AREEA is a strong supporter of the goal of national harmonisation of Australia’s workplace health and safety laws.
AREEA also supports the national harmonisation of Australia’s mine safety laws with the aim of providing a clear and seamless system of regulation for mining industry employers.
However, in AREEA’s submission on the Model Work Health and Safety Regulations for Mining, AREEA has reiterated its concerns that neither the OHS harmonisation process as a whole, nor the harmonisation of mine-specific regulations, will result in nationally consistent regulation of work health and safety issues across Australia.
