We have assembled a range of links to the latest Queensland coal mining safety and health act, Queensland coal mining safety and health regulation 2001, Mining and Quarrying Safety and Health Act, other relevant regulations, recognised standards, guidelines and guidance notes for Queensland mine safety.

The links to the Queensland mines department and legislation provide comprehensive coverage of information for Queensland mine safety.

Queensland Mining Acts and Regulations

Recognised Standards for Queensland Coal Mines

Section 72(1) of the Coal Mining Safety and Health Act 1999 specifies that the Minister for Natural Resources, Mines and Energy may make recognised standards. Standards state ways of achieving an acceptable level of risk for people working in coal mines. Operators can manage the risk in a different way, but must be able to show that the method used is at least equivalent to the method in the recognised standard.
