Quarry Oversight Inspection Checklist – Part 4

By on January 18, 2016

The last twelve months have seen WorkSafe Victoria develop a comprehensive Quarry Oversight Inspection Checklist.

The purpose of the checklist is to develop an internal document to assist inspectors and while it was provided to the industry for feedback it is never intended to become a ‘top to bottom’ tick the box tool. It is a tool to assist inspectors focusing their attention on specific topics while at a site.

Inspectors would use those areas of the checklist which were relevant to the visit and importantly to the specific quarry site being inspected. If the checklist is to be used by a quarry operator the same would apply. They would only need to use those areas of the tool that is relevant to their site and the checklist could also be modified to meet the specific nature of a quarry.

This is the last in a four part series providing a detailed outline of what inspectors may focus on during a visit. (See table below as an example of the checklist – blue area shows sample responses).








The following lists are of examples outlining hazard checks which inspectors may focus on during a visit.
