Mines Inspectorate

The Mines Inspectorate's role is to ensure that acceptable safety and health standards are established and practised within the mining and quarrying industries.

It establishes safety and health legislation and standards, undertakes audits and inspections, and promotes and participates in safety and health education programs.

The Mines Inspectorate is part of Resources Safety & Health Queensland (RSHQ), the independent statutory body responsible for administering safety and health legislation in the Queensland mining, petroleum and gas, explosives and fireworks industries.

Compliance and Enforcement Policy

The Compliance and Enforcement Policy outlines the principles and practices that underpin RSHQs compliance and enforcement actions, which are a critical part of preventing serious harm to workers and the community across the Queensland resources industry.

It also provides guidance when determining a regulatory response and, when applied, will be informed by consideration of the specific circumstances of each matter.
