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 the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy (DNRME).
The compliance policy explains how the Mining Inspectorate promotes and achieves compliance with Queensland mining safety and health legislation. For more information read:
