Pro-Visual Publishing is pleased to announce the launch of the 2012/13 edition of the Mining & Quarry Industry Guide to Safety. Since the release of last year’s edition of the guide, the project has been expanded to include quarrying businesses across New Zealand. The project is endorsed by the New Zealand Institute of Safety Management and the content has been generously provided by health and safety specialist, Rowly Brown. It has been distributed to thousands of workplace health and safety representatives in the NZ mining and quarrying sector, with additional copies available upon request.
Understanding that every workplace operates in a different way, the information contained within this project focuses on general workplace health and safety procedures that are relevant to all mines and quarries regardless of their operations. Health and safety management planning is a prominent topic, which provides a breakdown of goals and objectives for implementing health and safety plans, hazard assessment, and an outline of the responsibilities of both management and employees.
In addition, the Mining & Quarry Industry Guide to Safety 2012/13 provides information on emergency preparations and procedures. For example, procedures and a list of definitions supporting the principles of HSE regulations, relating to machine guarding, are included. With these topics and more, the guide is an extensive and invaluable resource for the industry. Recipients of the guide are also provided with the opportunity to enter a competition, with a $5,000 holiday voucher prize.
