Forums and seminars return to face-to-face delivery


2022 was an event-full year for the mechanical engineering team with 9 forums and seminars.

The final mechanical engineering forums for 2022 held in Dubbo, Singleton and Penrith in December received strong industry support.

The Regulator’s mechanical engineering events aim to deliver relevant information across a range of topics to support mine mechanical engineers, designers and service providers. These range from data analysis and statistics from notifiable incidents, to changes with legislation requirements and feedback from planned inspections and case specific incident investigations, safety alerts and bulletins.

In 2022, this included the release of Work Health and Safety (Mines and Petroleum Sites) Regulation 2022, planned inspection results regarding structural integrity, falling objects, powered winding systems as well as new design orders and the first registration specific forum targeted towards item and design registration holders.

We are grateful to the mines and industry representatives who contributed to these events throughout the year by sharing their incident learnings, safety innovations, knowledge and experiences.

This year’s forums and seminars will go back to face-to-face delivery, rather than the hybrid model. Keep an eye on our events page or subscribe to Mine Safety News for dates.
