Regs review consultation document released

Posted on 5 July 2018

The consultation document for the review of the Health and Safety at Work (Mining Operations and Quarrying Operations) Regulations 2016 has been released by the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment.

MinEx has had strong input into this document on behalf of the extractives sector.

At first glance, the consultation document seems to contain proposals relating to changes MinEx and industry had suggested.

MBIE continue to want industry input and that's very welcome.

Just as we did with our original submission, we would like to know what you think, before we submit our feedback.

Take a look at the consultation document here. Then, if you have any questions or, want to talk something over,  please get in touch. 

If you would like to feedback directly to MBIE, email

Let's ensure we work together and take every opportunity to get these regs right.
