NSW Small Mines Roadshow makes the rounds


The New South Wales Resources Regulator is bringing quarry operators and managers together at the 2022 Small Mines Roadshow from February to April.

Fifteen locations across the state will host a free six-hour workshop, including Newcastle, Tamworth, Dubbo, Wollongong and Wagga Wagga.

The show will span from 10 February to 6 April to provide every opportunity for the NSW quarrying industry to improve its credentials in health, safety, training and other management areas.

The workshops will also include a 2021 quarrying report card, to assess the state of the industry and where it can improve.

The Regulator’s principal inspector of small mines Dan Bolton said the roadshow would improve an already impressive regulatory system.

“The roadshows were developed to assist small mines and quarries to maintain safe mining practices, as well as providing an opportunity for face to face engagement with the Regulator,” Bolton said.

“NSW has a world-class regulatory system for mines and quarries and having safety plans is integral to every mining operation.

“We recognise that resourcing and preparing things like mine safety management plans can be challenging for smaller operators but they are essential for safe mining and quarrying activities.”

All attendees will be asked to comply with the state’s COVID-19 requirements, including masks indoors and proof of vaccination.
