What tools are available for inspections, audits and other reviews?

The department conducts compliance monitoring activities including inspections, audits and other verification activities with the aims of:

  • enhancing work health and safety management practices
  • achieving sustainable compliance with safety legislation.

Inspectors will address any identified deficiencies by using compliance and enforcement tools appropriate to the circumstances.

Mine managers are encouraged to perform regular safety checks of mine sites using the same audit templates and checklists used by the mines inspectors.

You can search for checklists and audit templates and guidelines in the Publications and resources area and download them for site use.
