The Minister for Industrial Relations in South Australia, Russell Wortley, has launched the Toolbox Safety DVD series, which was produced by the Mining and Quarrying Occupational Health and Safety Committee (MAQOHSC).
?The Committee promotes and supports initiatives to improve work health and safety in South Australia?s mining and quarrying industries, but is a separate entity to the government?s workplace safety regulator, SafeWork SA,? the Minister said.
?This DVD series will be particularly valuable to the smaller operators in these industries who may not always be able to devote the same resources to health and safety that the larger players can.?
MAQOHSC also employs field officers who visit mines and quarries to provide services including occupational health, safety and welfare (OHSW) training, plant and process safety, OHSW audits, OHSW management plans and procedures, training needs analysis and mentoring.
The Toolbox DVD series can be ordered, viewed or downloaded free via the MAQOHSC website: www.maqohsc.sa.gov.au
