Your Legal Duties

New OHS regulations came into effect on 1 July 2007.

The OHS Regulations contain mines requirements. These obligations are addressed in Chapter 5 of the regulations.

The OHS Regulations set requirements for mines generally and particular requirements for prescribed mines.

The mines regulations do not apply to quarries.

The regulations impose obligations on employers who are mine operators, and employees. They are similar to the previous regulations.
