Serious accidents and high-potential incidents

Queensland mining and quarrying operators must report serious accidents and high-potential incidents to the Mines Inspectorate.

Learnings from accidents and incidents within Queensland's resources industries are provided directly to industry executives and staff through a range of channels, including Site Senior Executive Forums, Underground Mine Manager Forums and seminars, conferences and other forums for quarry operators.

Safety alerts are also emailed directly to more than 1,500 industry executives, managers and safety officers, if an investigation uncovers new or potentially unknown safety concerns. All safety alerts are available online.

Publicly available summaries and statistics on safety incidents are provided through the annual Queensland mines and quarries safety performance and health reports.
