In quarrying, the containment and reduction of dust emissions is an ongoing concern and challenge. An Australian business with experience across the extractive industries has devised a dust reduction solution using the best equipment and testing techniques in modern science.
Injuries and fatalities in the extractive industry often occur – and reoccur – because of systemic failures. Tony Ferrazza explains how a course being run by the IQA on behalf of the NSW Resources Regulator is educating quarry professionals to recognise the underlying causes of past safety incidents in their own operations.
The premier conference for the extractive and associated industries, the 62nd Institute of Quarrying Australia National Conference – to be hosted from 5 to 7 October, 2021 – will showcase the city of Newcastle, and provide opportunities to re-connect through an innovative and engaging program.
In line with new experience requirements for Certificates of Compliance applicants, the NSW Resources Regulator will be holding a number of workshops to inform quarry managers holding practising certificates.
