Vehicle incidents - heading in the wrong direction

Near miss incidents involving vehicles have the potential to seriously injure or kill, due to the sheer size of the equipment typically involved.

We focus heavily on ensuring mine operators provide a safe work environment and will always do so. Mine workers are being reminded of the risk and their obligation to look after their safety, as well as the safety of their workmates.

Awareness campaign resources, specifically targeting mine workers at open cut coal mining operations and selected metalliferous operations in NSW, address the risk of collisions involving heavy mining equipment.
