Introductory Awareness to the WHS Act and WHS Mines Regulations

A new half-day course outlining the changes pertaining to new WHS Act & WHS Mines Regulations

Course Overview

A half day course (4 hours) focusing on the changes between the old regulations and the new regulations for plant registration, mine management systems, and mine site management structure.

Following the introduction of the new WHS laws and regulations “Classified Plant” is now called “Registerable Plant.” AME have been fielding a number of enquiries based around the implementation of the new regulations and what site requirements that they may change.

If you own Registerable Plant, it is imperative to understand your registration requirements for existing plant plus the implementation of a Mine Safety Management System. The aim of our industry leading training course is to give you a fundamental understanding of regulatory changes from the MSIR 1995 to the WHS Mines Regulations 2022 and how this may effect the management structure, WHS duties, Hazard or risk mitigation and the management of registerable plant (plant registration) on a mine site moving forward into the future.
