Extractive Industry Safety Guidelines

By on April 5, 2016

The Guideline “Working Safely with Geotechnical Risk in Quarries” together with the CMPA’s Work Safely Reference Manual aims to support CMPA members in meeting the requirements of the Victorian Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 by ensuring that:

  • Geotechnical hazards associated with quarry ground movement and quarry operations are identified, assessed where required and then controlled in a manner to reduce the risk of personal or vehicle engulfment; and
  • Quarry infrastructure is established in a manner so as to prevent vehicles that have lost control, or persons working close to edges from falling to another level.

To achieve the above this Guideline focusses on pit design and water management, the two most critical elements of winning source materials in a safe and economical manner.
