Coal Services recently observed two significant milestones, celebrating its twentieth anniversary as well as the centenary of its predecessors. The organisation prides itself on its ongoing commitment to the health and safety of the NSW coal mining industry and today their purpose remains, ‘To Protect’.
Despite all improvements to build safe workplaces, there are still inherent hazards in the mining industry. Vigilance is key to maintaining safe workplaces. Ensuring that best practice systems and processes are in place – and that they are monitored and tested regularly – help to uphold a focus on prevention and risk mitigation.
Mines Rescue has a team dedicated to helping employers through specialised consulting and compliance services. It complements the work they do in safety training and emergency response and includes auditing, crisis and emergency management, development and testing of emergency management systems and safety management systems, as well as risk scoping and assessment.
