NSW Mine Safety have started a new weekly incident summary, aimed at improving safety in Australian mines.
The summary will be published online, and will show the total weekly “reportable incidents”, categorised as Level 1, 2, or 3 according to the seriousness of the incident – with 3 being most serious.
It will give an overview on any incidents, injuries, high potential incidents and fatalities.
“The new weekly summary has been developed to help the NSW mining industry identify the types of health and safety incidents that are occurring within the industry and to improve their risk management,” NSW Mine Safety said.
“The summary complements the departments existing range of incident related information, including e-alerts, safety alerts, safety bulletins, investigation information releases and investigation reports.”
