Victoria’s Earth Resources Regulator is looking for feedback on the draft code of practice which encompasses common risk management techniques for quarries.
The draft feedback opened recently as it looked to get views from the state’s quarry and aggregates industry to create a code of practice which reflected the modern industry.
“Your feedback is crucial to creating a Code of Practice that is fit for purpose,” they said in a statement.
“Thank you for your participation and we look forward to receiving your contribution.”
The code is aiming to improve these areas:
- provide a shared understanding of common hazards, performance standards and control to remove or minimise impacts from the hazards that occur at quarries.
- simplify and streamline requirements for assessments of quarry work plans and work plan variations.
- reduce duplication in assessments between co-regulators.
The regulator will close the feedback period will be closing on October 16 on 5pm.
