Your Responsibilities as Mine Site Manager
Under WA’s new Work Health and Safety Act 2020 and the Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulations 2022, which came into effect on 31 March 2022, the term “Classified Plant” has been replaced with “Registerable Plant”. The new WHS Act and accompanying regulations combine WHS for general industry, mines and petroleum and geothermal operations under a single Act, replacing the previously applicable Mines Safety & Inspection Act 1994 and the associated Mines Safety & Inspections Regulations 1995.
The Registered Manager is ultimately accountable for implementing a process for managing and inspecting Registerable Plant and ensuring that all plant on their mine site is compliant with government regulations.
The site Appointed Person(s) (AP) is accountable to ensure that any hired or contractor owned/hired Registerable Plant brought onto a mine site complies with the relevant statutory requirements.
The Itinerant Registerable Plant Inspector is responsible for conducting the document checks and visual safety inspections to ensure this.
